Default Chorizo recipes (6)


Chorizo is as easy to make as Italian sausage. You don't need to
stuff it into a casing, because it's used loose.

1 lb pork, ground
1 Tbsp red chile peppers, ground (can substitute paprika)
1/2 tsp coriander, ground
1/4 tsp cloves, ground
1/4 tsp black pepper, ground
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp cumin, ground
2 cloves garlic, minced

Mexican Chorizo Recipe
Serves 6

10 lbs boneless pork butt, ground
6 Tbsp salt
1 cup vinegar
5 Tbsp paprika
3 Tbsp hot pepper, ground
8 cloves fresh garlic, pressed
1 Tbsp oregano
2 tsp black pepper, coarse ground
1 cup water

Directions

Grind all the pork butts with a 1/4" grinding plate and place into a
large bowl. If it's too much trouble to grind your own, just buy
ground pork.

Add all remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly until all the spices
are evenly distributed.

Stuff the chorizo into a 1-1/2 inch (40 milimeter) hog casing. Hang
chorizo to dry overnight in a cool dry place. Drying time for this
chorizo recipe will be a little longer than most.


Fast & Easy Chorizo Recipe

Ingredients
2 cloves garlic, mashed
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp vinegar
2 Tbsp chili powder
1-1/2 tsp salt
1-1/2 pounds pork, ground

Directions

thoroughly. Use in any recipe that calls for chorizo.

blend and you'll have a more flavorful mexican chorizo.


Chorizo Autentico

Ingredients

2 lbs pork, ground
3-1/2 tsp salt
6 Tbsp pure ground red chile
6 - 20 small hot dried red chiles tepin, Thai dragon, pico de gallo
or similar, crushed
4 - 6 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp dry leaf oregano
2 tsp whole cumin seed, crushed
1 tsp black pepper, ground
1-1/2 tsp sugar
4 Tbsp cider or wine vinegar
2-1/2 Tbsp water

Directions:

Place ground pork in a large bowl and separate into medium-sized
pieces.

Add all remaining ingredients and mix using two forks until thoroughly
and evenly mixed.

Use your hands and knead the chorizo some more until it is completely
mixed. Cover, refrigerate and let chorizo cure for a couple days.

You can use it immediately, but it always tastes much better when you
let the chorizo spices blend together. Your authentic mexican chorizo
will keep in the refrigerator about a couple of weeks.

Wrap the sausage in small packages and freeze unused portions.
Chorizo will keep several months in your freezer. It can also be
stuffed into casings and smoked like any other pork sausage.


Chorizo Mexicano

Serves 8
Ingredients
2 lb Pork; lean, coarse grind
1/4 lb Pork fat; chop fine
2 Tbsp Paprika
2 Tbsp Chili powder
1 tsp Pepper, black
1/2 tsp Cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp Cloves, ground
1/4 tsp Coriander, ground
1/4 tsp Ginger; grated
1 tsp Oregano, dried, crushed
1 tsp Cumin, ground
2 tsp Salt
6 Garlic cloves; crushed
1/2 cup Vinegar, white
1/2 cup Sherry, dry (can substitute brandy)
1 Sausage casing (optional)
Directions:

Combine pork meat and fat thoroughly. Add paprika, chili powder,
pepper, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, ginger, oregano, cumin, garlic,
salt, vinegar and sherry (brandy may be substituted). Mix well with
hands.

Mixture may be stored in a crock in cool place for twenty-four hours,
or better, for 2 or 3 days. Form into patties and saute.

Alternatively the mixture may be forced into sausage casing and hung
to dry in a cool place. This is best done in cold weather and hung in
a breezy place help with drying.


Mexican Chorizo

Serves 10

Ingredients

2 lb Pork tenderloin, ground
5 Chiles anchos
1/2 tsp Coriander seeds, roasted
1/2 tsp Peppercorns
1/8 tsp Cumin seeds
2 Tbsp Sweet paprika
2/3 cup Mild white vinegar
1/2 lb Pork fat
2 Chiles pasilla
3 Cloves
1/2 tsp Oregano (Mexican)
4 cloves Garlic, crushed
2-1/2 tsp Salt

Directions

Chop the meat roughly, (or use coarse ground pork), together with the
fat.

Toast the chiles well, turning them from time to time so they don't
burn.

While they are still warm and flexible, slit the chiles open and
remove the seeds and veins. They will become crisp as they cool.

Grind the spices together with the chiles. Mix the ground spices and
chiles with the rest of the ingredients and rub them well into the
meat with your hands.

Cover the chorizo mixture and put in the refrigerator to blend for 3
days, stirring well each day. You can stuff the chorizo into sausage
casings, or use it straight from the bowl.

If you don't want to stuff the meat into casings, leave it to cure
for about a week. Store in air-tight container in the freezer.

I love any sausage recipe that's easy and needn't be stuffed.

Quite a plethora to choose from here.

Thanks, SF. Chorizo con huevos is as "stand-by" as Mexican foods get.
