DIRECTIONS

  • Break the colorin chiles into 3 pieces, and put them and the deArbol peppers in a bowl.
  • Pour the boiling water over them and let them sit until they're re-hydrated and soft.
  • Place the re-hydrated chiles together with the liquid into a food processor and add the garlic, oregano, cumin, black pepper, sugar, vinegar, tequila, and salt, and process until the mixture is smooth.
  • Place ground pork and the liquid mixture into a sturdy electric mixer (such as a KitchenAid) and mix well.
  • When secured in a sealed container, this chorizo keeps well in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks. I usually let it sit in the fridge for a couple of days to let the flavors meld, then divide it into smaller portions of 3 to 4 ounces (that's about two servings) and freeze it. If you have casings, you can also stuff it into those and smoke it - very tasty!
