Default Mexican style Chorizo

Just received my christmas present to myself, the book Charcuterie. I love the book by the way. Anyhow the first recipe that caught my eye was Mexican style Chorizo, because we cook alot of athentic Mexican dishes. Started with a 5 lb pork butt, cut it up and added spices.

Then it was run through the grinder once with the 3/16 die and to that added a little liquid and mixed by hand.

And finally I made a little patty and fried in pan to check spice levels. It turned out great. Tomorrow will be Chorizo and scrambled eggs for breakfast! The only thing I am not sure of is the color. Commercially offered chorizo is usually a little more red in color. Taste is awesome though.

The commercial stuff has way more fat I think.
When I cook the commercial stuff it literally falls apart into tiny grains/almost liquid

The commercial stuff gets its color from a good bit of red dye I'm sure. One thing you can use for color that will not add too much flavor and take away from the flavor profile is paprika. Looks good from here. Actually, the good homemade chorizo I get at the mom and pop places, doesn't have the red color. It looks just like yours.

It looks great! Would you be willing to elaborate on what spices you put in?

Try a bit more paprika or get some anchiote paste (or powder). Start with just a bit more because the anchiote will get real ORANGE on you if you aren't careful. Have fun and don't worry about color...most commerical sausage uses dye.

Looks great. I made some a while back, and it looked like yours. What I've found with sausage is that the more you get away from comparing yours to the store bought, the better off you are. I'd kill for a plate of that with some eggs this morning.

Thats the whole list. It was very easy to make. So easy a Brethren could do it.
