Homemade Mexican Chorizo

Homemade Mexican Chorizo created by gailanng

I love choizo, but who knows what is in the commercially prepared kind? This homemade Mexican chorizo is delicious with scrambled eggs served in a flour tortilla. I usually prepare this chorizo with ground turkey.

    I want to make chorizo. My question is chili powder. It’s rather complicated. The recipe calls for 4TBS then u add pretty much the same ingredients that’s already in the powder. There’s so many recipes for chili powder that what I choose can affect the out come or the dish. A few yrs ago I bought a bottle of hot chili powder. Apparently this is “chili” peppers only. No paprika or other stuff. This stuff is HOT. 1/2 tsp and this will smoke us. If I use this should I increase the other ingredients or should I make a chile powder using the pure chili stuff? I didn’t relize chili powder had so much in it. Some recipes only use 1/4tsp of cayenne pepper as the only hot spice. No wonder it takes so much to make anything hot.

    I just made this chorizo to bring camping with us for a pot of chili and a breakfast casserole. Never even thought of making my own, as I usually just buy it. But wow, how easy and good does it taste. I did use only 1/2 teaspoon of salt to start, and used 1/2 ground turkey and 1/2 ground pork sausage. I may never buy chorizo again!

    I made this with ground turkey and the flavor was great. Mixed with eggs, it was fantastic, but a little dry on its own - I'll try ground pork next time. As others have mentioned, this is much better than chorizo I've been able to buy at the grocery store - highly recommended.
