Homemade chorizo mince

    8 hours 10 minutes

    Savoury and spicy chorizo made with pork, garlic, vinegar and dried chillies. This is a cheat's chorizo, as there's no need for sausage 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.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This is an easy recipe that is made ahead of time. Prepare the night before and it,s ready when you get home from work. I fry it in a pan, then scramble it with beaten eggs.  -  29 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.  -  29 Sep 2008
