Homemade Chorizo

I was so pleasantly surprised when I made this was FULL of flavor.  It was definitely different than your store bought chorizo - it was BETTER!  I will never go back to the store bought stuff.  This homemade version can be customized to the meat you have on hand.  I made mine with 1/2 lean ground beef and 1/2 lean ground turkey but it can be also be made with pork or a mixture of meats.  They key is the seasoning!

Inspired by

1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/2 lb lean ground turkey
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tbl chili powder
1 tbl paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp pepper

Place all ingredients into a large bowl and knead meat until spices are completely combined.  Meat is ready to use.  Form into patties, stuff into casings or cook loosely and's all delicious!
