Chorizo Recipe

Hey Hounds

So I need to make more chorizo. Mexican style chorizo. Anyone got a good recipe?? Mine if quite good but it's not awesome.

  1. How do you make yours? I marinate ground shoulder with ground ancho, pasillas, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, cloves, garlic, oregano and cider vinegar. I'll also add a little ground habanero if I want it extra spicy.

    1. JungMann and I are on the same wavelength:

      I've been meaning to try a green chorizo recipe and came across this one:
      I haven't checked, but it might be similar to one from Diana Kennedy.

        Where did you find that recipe?? I wasn't able to find one in a search.

          I just used Google to find the second one, and ....
          the first one is My own!

          Search Chow for previous topics on Mexican style chorizo and why you should avoid the commercial versions; there might be other recipes there. For a Google example, search ' mexican chorizo' without the quotes.

        2. I've used and like the recipe for Oaxacan chorizo from the Culinary Institute of America, lots of good recipes both here and from other Mexican regions
