  • 20 g sachet Mexican Chorizo Spice Mix from Cool Chile Co
  • 1 Chile Ancho
  • 2 Chiles Guajillo
  • 1 Chile de Árbol
  • 500 g minced pork or beef 20% fat
  • 3 garlic cloves roughly chopped
  • 50 ml cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp oil


  1. Wipe the dried chillies clean and remove any seeds and stems
  2. Open the chillies out flat and briefly toast them in a dry pan on a medium heat until you can begin to smell them
  3. Add the chillies to a bowl and soak them in just boiled water for 15 minutes
  4. Remove the chillies from the liquid and add them to a small food processor. Keep the soaking liquid
  5. Blend the chillies with the sachet of Mexican spice mix, garlic, cider vinegar and 3-4 tbsp of the soaking water. You’re looking for a smooth paste like consistency
  6. Push the blended mixture through a fine sieve
  7. Once cool, add to the meat and mix thoroughly
  8. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the oil. Once the oil is hot, add the meat to the pan. Break it up using a wooden spoon and cook until it is browned and cooked through
  9. Serve with scrambled eggs
