    I made a batch of chorizo last week from Homesick Texan's recipe (looked just like what you did)  and it was very, very good. Since I wasn't a chorizo expert I gave some to my Mexican neighbors to try...they liked it and asked for the recipe. That's a win!
    Looking at yours has me back in gear to make more...thanks!
    Freezes well?
    If you don't think too good, don't think too much.

  • Most all mexican chorizo have a out the same ingredients technique/execution Is the difference.
    I add my puree back to the stove to reduce to right consistency at the point the toasted spices are added. The puree's consistency is based on the leanness or fattyness of the pork. (I grind my own mostly)
    Ancho peppers can be added to or replace the guajios. I prefer guajillos because they have some heat but dont have a bitter back bite.
    Also before you even puree the chiles taste the steeping water. If it is bitter start over again. Bitter is either from over roasting or over steeping, either way it wont be good eats. I never steep guajillos longer the 20 minutes.
    BTW this technique is basis for moles and red enchilada sauce ...just another mix of peppers and ingredients.
