Homemade Fresh Chorizo

This homemade fresh chorizo is a common Mexican seasoned ground meat that is the foundation for a variety of popular recipes.

This style of fresh chorizo originates in Mexico and is different from its Spanish cousin of the same name which is a dry-fermented and smoked sausage. 

Although it is often cooked in a loose format as part of other Mexican recipes such as tacos and savory rices, it may also be put in a casing as done with traditional sausages.

Ingredients

2 pounds (900g) ground pork (pork mince)

1 tablespoon garlic, finely diced

1 tablespoon sweet paprika

1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons freshly cracked pepper

2 teaspoons kosha salt

2 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 cup water

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Equipment

bowl

Recipe Directions

  1. Add to the ground pork (pork mince) the garlic, paprika, cayenne, black pepper, salt, chili powder, oregano, and thyme then gently mix until well combined.

  2. Add the water and vinegar and continue to mix until white strands start to appear in the mixture. 

  3. The fresh chorizo can be cooked however you desire.

    Option 1 – Turn into sausages by stuffing 32/35mm soaked hog casings.

    Option 2 – Fry in a skillet and serve as a sausage crumble.

    Option 3 – Use in other recipes requiring fresh chorizo sausage.
