Inside Out Enchilada Fatty, My Throwdown Entry

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

When I heard the theme for the throwdown would be fatties I knew I had to make my fatty with chorizo. I love that spicy sausage. I made a batch of homemade chorizo ( see http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/175611/bulk-chorizo).

 

I decided to turn one of my favourite dishes, enchiladas, on its head. I was going to put the tortillas inside.

 

I made Enchilada Sauce.

 

The ingredients for the Enchilada Sauce are:

 

  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 3/4 cup Onion fine chop
  • 1 clove Garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp plus one tsp Chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups canned diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Lime juice

 

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, chili powder, coriander, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper and stir constantly until the spices give a strong odour, about 2 minutes.

 

 

 

Add the tomatoes and lime juice. Bring the sauce to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.

 

 

 

I measured 500 grams of the chorizo.

 

 

I put it in a large resealable bag that I had cut the corners out of to allow the air to release.

 

 

I rolled it flat.

 

 

I cut one side of the bag off, turned the meat onto a sheet of wax paper and removed the bag.

 

 

 

I spread a layer of enchilada sauce on it. Then a smear of refried beans.

 

 

I sprinkled some grated cheddar on.

 

 

I cut some warmed tortillas in squares and covered the fillings.

 

 

I used the wax paper to help roll the fatty.

 

 

 

I put the fatty on a sheet of plastic wrap and rolled it in the wrap.

 

 

 

I grasped the wrap at the ends and rolled the fatty to get a better shape. I put the fatty in the freezer for 2 hours. I fine it easier to deal with if it is slightly frozen.

 

 

I made my bacon weave.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I put it in the Bradley at 230 F over oak smoke until the internal temperature was 165 F

 

 

Here are the money shots that show I am better at cooking than photography.

 

 

 

 

The Verdict

 

This was so tasty. It looked good, it tasted good and I will make it again.

 

I would like to thank everyone who took part in the throwdown and congratulate bmaddox on winning the judges competition.

Thanks, Case. I'm glad you got busy, I wouldn't have wanted to compete against you.

That looks great! I really liked your concept. If my wife would eat chorizo I would be all over this. On second thought, maybe I will make it and keep it all for myself.

The first sign of a smoking addiction, hiding food from the wife? Thanks for the kind words.
