  • 1 pound spicy bulk pork sausage
  • 2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


Combine pork sausage, cider vinegar, cilantro, chili powder, garlic, and cumin. Mix well, but do not over-handle.
