Default Dirty Dave's Chorizo

Chorizo Recipe for 10 lbs

Meat: 70/30, 7 pounds Wild Game, 3 pounds Bacon or Bacon ends
(you can go 80/20 or 90/10 if you want, but it gets dry with less fat)

8 teaspoons hot ground pepper (I use cayenne)
10 teaspoons granulated garlic (or 10 fresh cloves)
2 teaspoons dried Mexican oregano
4 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoon medium grind fresh black pepper
4 tablespoons paprika
4 to 3 tablespoons Kosher salt
2 cups cider vinegar, very cold or chilled with ice
2 teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper

Grind the meat and bacon together
Combine all the dry spices in a 1 small container and mix them the 1 cup of very cold cider vinegar.
Pour the spice and vinegar combination into the ground meat and mix thoroughly for at least 2 minutes. Use your hands for mixing to assure even distribution.
Either stuff into casings or make into bulk packages.
If you stuff the sausage, it is best to let it hang (if possible) in a cooler or refrigerator for 8 to 12 hours to dry.

Please don't take this wrong. Are we talking Mexican style chorizo? Like Peytons?

Hillshire Farms came out with some a few yrs in links and it was different.

If its Mexican style, like scrambling with eggs I love the stuff. Not being a smart elec. If its the one I like I would try it.

You will never know if you will like it unless you try it.

That's all I do with this is scramble with eggs. I don't ever stuff it into links, but a person could if they wanted. Might be good on a hotdog bun.

I divide it up into 1lb portions and freeze it.
1lb and 10 or 12 eggs and you got some breakfast. Get out the tortillas!!!

Wal Mart carried this stuff several yrs ago. I tried taking the condom off and frying it with eggs. Not good. Thats why I asked. Sorry just needed clarification.

Have a questions on this recipe. ingredient list says 2 cups very cold cider vinegar. But the directions say mix spices with 1 cup vinegar. Could someone clarify please. I would love to make this as I have some left over ground venison.
