Rib Tip Chorizo Recipe
- 1 lb rib tips
- 3 oz pork/beef fat (Alternatively, you can just use store bought ground pork)
- 4 dried Guajillo chiles
- 1/4 cup vinegar of your choice (We used a combination of apple cider and pomegranate vinegars)
- 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp Mexican oregano
- 1/4 tsp Cayenne powder
- 2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp Habanero powder (optional)
In a dry, hot skillet, toast the chiles for about 30 seconds on each side. Add enough water to cover the chiles. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let chiles soak until moist, about 30 minutes.
Remove moistened chiles from the soaking liquid, de-stem, and place in a blender. Add to the blender the vinegar, onion and garlic. Blend until a smooth paste, similar to ketchup, if formed.
If your meat and fat mixture is not yet ground, grind using a small die.
Add to the ground meat the chile paste and all the spices. Mix by hand. Cook a test batch in a skillet and adjust seasoning as needed.
