Looks great and I love chorizo.
Do you have any idea what you spent on spices? Seems cost prohibitive.
I'll get with mama on that red, she had many of the spices already. The ancho chile is .99 cents a package and it takes quite a bit but you can also make your own or substitute with another chile powder. Your right though, all we made was 6lbs but the spices probably were $6-10 bucks. One thing though about Chorizo though its a powerhouse of flavor. Just need like a small little link or so to mix in with your eggs or beans and you can taste it.
