Mexican Chorizo

Chorizo is a heavily spiced sausage commonly used in Mexican dishes.
It's believed that chorizo as a whole has been around since Roman times, but Mexican chorizo was adopted a little later on when it was adopted by Mexico from Spain. Today, it is very popular throughout Mexico and even in some areas across the United States.

Making Homemade Mexican Chorizo

  • Gather all your spices together, and mix thoroughly in a large bowl.
  • Add ground meat, vinegar, and water to spices. 
  • Using your hands, mix until all ingredients are combined.
  • Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 4 days, or freeze in airtight freezer bags for up to 3 months.

Many recipes call for about 1/4 lb at a time, so I divide it up into 1/4 lb bags and freeze them so they’re ready for use when I need them. Chorizo can be frozen in an airtight container or bags for up to 3 months.
