My Habanero Chorizo Pizza Experiment

In Chile Peppers, Recipes, Spicy Main Dishes by Mark MaskerLeave a Comment

Two weeks ago, my niece Jordan ordered me to grind up a batch of my habanero chorizo for the family’s Saturday grill night. What she did not dictate was how I cooked it for the group. Some of you may remember how much I love playing with grilling pizza. I combined the two dishes in this simple little twist on pizza and quesadillas. The only person who ended up hating it was me because it was all gone before I had a chance to fill up on the stuff.

Grindhouse: Pasilla Peppers with Habanero Chorizo Stuffing

Chorizo sausage is a great idea on paper, but it’s often a lousy idea in plastic. You’d think Mexican (or Spanish) spices and ground pork would be hard to mess up. Yet every time I bite into the grease-laden, second-class meat product from a plastic wrapper that passes for chorizo at my local supermarket, the maker finds new and exciting ways to disappoint me. That’s part of the reason I got my mitts on a Cabela’s Pro Series motorized meat grinder. The other was so I can make my own pepperoni, Christmas breakfast sausage, and ground bacon burgers, but that’s at least two other stories.
