"This chorizo is delicious, easy to make and way better than store bought. I keep some in the freezer at all times for a quick and easy breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs, and cotija or Monterey Jack cheese. Enjoy!"

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, ground pork, chili powder, oregano, garlic, salt, red wine and vinegar. I find that using my hands works the best. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 days. Take out daily, and mix thoroughly.
  2. If you are not going to cook with it immediately, divide it into 1 to 2 pound portions, and store in freezer bags in the freezer.

I just want to say for those of you who put wine in chorizo, this is not "real Mexican chorizo" . I have always made my own "real Mexican chorizo" ground beef, chicken version, and vegetarian v...

I made this recipe without any alterations and wasn't very impressed. I made it on a Saturday, mixed it every day, and cooked some for the first time on Tuesday. The chorizo had a pretty disti...
