Yum! My only change was to use 1/4 cup chili powder and 1/4 pepper flakes instead of the full 1/2 cup flakes.

Having never made chorizo before and for someone who lives in the Southwest, this recipe is awesome! Spicy, but not so spicy that your mouth hurts. This one is a keeper!

Made this with venison and it turned out great!! Just be sure to remove all fat before combining.

This is an easy recipe that is made ahead of time. Prepare the night before and it,s ready when you get home from work. I fry it in a pan,then scramble it with beaten eggs.

Make this, freeze this in 1/4lb portions and incorporate it when you make tacos or burritos or enchiladas. When I finished cooking it is when I added a little salt.

Chorizo pairs up nicely with fried potatoes, in addition to scrambled eggs. add a little cheese and you'll have a great burrito!

I thought this was ok as a spicy sausage recipe but not chorizo. I'll have to try something else.

I loved it. I just wish I had suggestions on how to use it. I used it like ground beef. I guess that worked because my family loved it.
