    This is my moms recipe. Pretty basic for chorizo except she uses 1/4 cup Tequila. 

    Sealing for the freezer.

    Tequila? In chorizo? WHY haven't I thought of that before? I'd bet that is an over the top flavor that would leave people guessing!

    Are ya gonna share the recipe? :biggrin:
