Making your own chorizo is so much better than buying it. You can add all of the spices you want and use a leaner cut of meat as well. I have known people who make this with deer meat. It is best to use a meat that has some fat content though. If you don't, it won't really taste like chorizo. I added chili powder, cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder to mine. Then, I fried some of it in a skillet and added in some scrambled eggs. We had chorizo and egg tacos. It was so good.
