About this recipe: Savoury and spicy chorizo made with pork, garlic, vinegar and dried chillies. This is a cheat's chorizo, as there's no need for casings. I just think everything tastes better when it's homemade - try it and see!

Chorizo is good when used as a breakfast meal. Scramble eggs, add some beans, and then some chorizo. Cook together in a large frying pan and serve with flour or corn tortillas. (I can't give exact measurements because I just add to my family's liking) Play around with it. - 15 Sep 2008

Made this with venison and it turned out great!! Just be sure to remove all fat before combining. - 15 Sep 2008

Make this, then freeze this in 250g portions and incorporate it when you make tacos or burritos or enchiladas. When I finished cooking it is when I added a little salt. - 15 Sep 2008
