2 cups sliced onions
1 1/2 lbs boned chicken thighs (2 lbs with bones)
1 1/2 lbs turkey thighs or ground turkey
1/2 lb bacon in diced
1/4 cup sweet paprika
1 1/2 TBS garlic diced
1 TBS black pepper
2 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried ground mustard
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp cayenne pepper (I went heavy)
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp red pepper flakes (I went heavy)
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp mace
2-3 tsp salt
Simmer onions until translucent then cool.
I mix all of my spices together
lay out the meat evenly on a cookie sheet , add spices, add onions. Grind (I only have 2 size plates and use the larger one). fry sample for taste and adjust spices as needed. second grind, stuff.
I used this in a red beans and rice mixture.
Start making rice. Brown the sausage in cast iron, high heat, with a little canola oil. remove sausage. deglaze with cooking sherry or red wine. Add rice then beans. Add tomato paste (the kind in the tube that's double strength, about 1 tsp)and I added cilantro and some red curry paste, about 1/2 tbsp. Then add little water as necessary. Add olive oil and sausage. stir until warm.
This is strong in paprika, so use the good stuff. It is also a little spicy, be forewarned!
