Chorizo

Ingredients

1 Large Onion, Minced
2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
4 tablespoons Chili Powder
2 teaspoons Crushed Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
5 tablespoons Vinegar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 lbs Ground Pork

Instructions

1. Knead all ingredients together until well blended.



2. Shape into patties or meat loaf or stuff into sausage casings.

3. Make a large roll or tie off in 5 to 18-inch links with string.

4. Refrigerate in airtight containers for 2 to 3 days to allow flavors to blend. If you plan to use the sausage immediately, the spices will not be as strong. You may substitute 3/4 lb ground beef for half the pork, or red wine for the vinegar. Do not use rice vinegar. This sausage will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks. Or you can freeze it.
