    Miss Annie's Note:

    If you have a hard time finding chorizo, try making your own chorizo. It is good in a variety of Tex-Mex dishes. Especially good with scrambled eggs and onions in a warm flour tortilla for a breakfast taco.

      Call in the fire trucks!!!! I think the new brand of chili powder we purchased is a 5 alarm and this recipe was a hot one. In the freezer to cool off! Now I'm all set for mexican cooking.

      I've made this a few times now, and love it. I use lean beef or lean turkey, depending on what's on sale. Both taste good, and I end up with a lower-calorie chorizo without all the filler that pre-packaged brands might have. Thanks for sharing.

      Wonderful! Very tasty, great flavor, simple to make, and I love that you can control the ingredients. Used some in Southwest Sausage Casserole and froze some, cooked, for scrambled eggs later. Chorizo is readily available where I live but I made the mistake of reading the ingredients on the package. I'll stick to making my own! :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!
