Taco Sausage

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by mj-air23, Apr 11, 2008.

  1. Has anyone ever made a Taco Sausage? I am wondering if a person just uses taco seasonings, cure and some meat binder if it would turn out desirable. Any recipes out there?? Thanks guys!

    Used to make taco jerky. Just added taco seasoning to the mix. Wasn't bad at all.

    A good chorizo recipe would fill this bill nicely. I should be able to find one somewhere if you'd like.
     
  5. If you would be so kind sir, that would be great. I had wondered about Chorizo myself. I would be looking at a 25# batch or smaller. Thanks Mulepackin'.

    Not sure what kind of meat you plan on using, but can use boned butts or butts, and venison or beef.

    Chorizo 25#

    7 oz. salt
    8 oz. vinegar
    4 oz. paprika
    2 1/2 oz. ground hot pepper
    2 oz. fresh garlic
    1 1/2 oz. oregano
    1 1/2 oz. coarse ground black pepper
    1/2 lb. ice water
    20 lbs. lean venison or beef
    5 lbs. fat boned pork butt
    (or 25# of boned pork butt)

    Grind meat and/or butts through 1/4" plate. Mix spices thoroughly into meat. Stuff into hog casings. Let dry overnight in cool, dry place.

    Obviously, a fresh sausage, so handle accordingly. Could also be produced as a bulk sausage, and used like ground beef in Mexican dishes, etc.
