  • Make the chorizo: Set up a meat grinder with the finest disk. Cut the meat into cubes and grind once; then pass through again. For a ver fine, almost pasty texture, grind the meat a third time. (If you don't have a grinder, ask your butcher to do this for you.).
  • In a mini food chopper or food processor, pulse together the garlic, onion, and salt to a paste. Blend in the pepper, ground chile, cumin, oregano, and crushed chile. Blend in the vinegar. Scrape into a bowl. Add the pork and mix well. Knead until the meat and seasonings are well mixed. The sausage may be used right away, but it tastes better after a night in the refrigerator.
  • To serve, heat the oil in a medium frying pan and fry the chorizo until browned and crumbled into small pieces. Top each tortilla with a large dollop of crema and sprinkle with the chorizo, onion, cilantro, and lettuce.
