Inside Out Enchilada Fatty, My Throwdown Entry

    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.

    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.
