I was looking to make a lighter version of chorizo with a strong garlic flavor. The original recipe calls for ground pork and not having in I used turkey and made a few additional changes and the result was very good. The Ancho chile will not add alot of heat. It adds a nice rich flavor. The heat can be adjusted to your liking by increasing the red pepper flakes.
