Need fresh Mexican Chorizo

Just returned from Zihuatanejo, Mexico and we had the best chorizo tacos I've ever had. It made me realize that most of the chorizo I've been buying/cooking/ordering here stinks. Where can I find the real stuff? I live near Spanish Harlem so I know it must be close (and I read some things about Casablanca Butcher Shop which I will have to try). Any other ideas?

Anyone got a really good recipe so I can make it myself??

        Tehuitzingo is located on 47th @ 10th Ave. There's also another grocery store around the corner from Tehuitzingo on 46th between 10th and 11th Aves. that sells fresh Mexican chorizo.
