Great Tasting Deal Buster on Taco Tuesday

I love it when I can find great deals. (Memory recall of getting 5lbs of delicious chorizo for only $3.24). I was watching a little Food Network show the other night and this recipe popped up for homemade chorizo.  I made it the next day, even better than the screaming deal I got on the store bought stuff. BAP and SSP loved it too...though it required LOTS of milk.

Homemade Chorizo
adapted from:

2 T olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1/2 lb ground beef (12%fat)
2 T paprika
1 T cumin
1 T granulated garlic
2 t chili powder
1 t coriander
1/4 t cayenne
1/4 t cinnamon (weird, but necessary - it is great)
3 T Cholula hot sauce (like this one)
1/2 cup water
1 cup grilled corn (I just sauteed in a pan with salt, pepper and chili powder)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

In a large saute pan brown meat with the onion.  Once the onion is translucent and soft, stir in the corn and beans. In a separate bowl combine paprika, cumin, garlic, chili powder, coriander, cayenne, cinnamon, hot sauce and water to form a paste.  Pour over meat mixture. Stir. Simmer 15minutes until most the liquid is absorbed (stirring occasionally). Serve in tacos, over chips (as taco salad) or whatever other creative ideas you have.
