Shannon's Mexican Chorizo Recipe

For this recipe, you can use fresh minced onion but I just wasn't in the mood for it, so I used onion powder.

Add everything to your personal taste. If you don't have Ancho chili powder, for instance, just use regular.

1 lb ground pork
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T vinegar (I used cider vinegar)
1 T Ancho chili powder
1 t paprika
1 t onion powder
1 t cumin
1 t Adobo seasoning
1/2 t oregano, rubbed
1/2 t salt
splash or two hot sauce

Mix ingredients well and refrigerate 8 hours and up to overnight.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d437/d359/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
In a large frying pan over medium high heat, fry chorizo til lumps are gone and mixture is free of big meat chunks, about 40 minutes. If mixture appears too dry, add a bit of pinto bean cooking water or plain water. Taste and adjust as desired.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d436/d359/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
It is now ready to use in your favorite chorizo recipe.
For this particular batch, I made chorizo, pinto bean and egg tacos.
