Baird, who owns the Denver Bar Duo, competed – and won – in Episode 2201, “It’ll Be a Late Night,” with this classic spice. She makes her own chorizo, grinding a pig’s shoulder with a fragrant mixture of fresh oregano, ground cumin, smoked Spanish paprika, red pepper and chili de arbol. If you don’t want to make your own chorizo, she says, you can buy 1 pound of fresh Mexican chorizo, loose or in links.
Carrie Baird’s Hughes Ranchers with Homemade Chorizo and Pico de Gallo Salsa Verde
6 flour tartella, 6 inch diameter.
1 pound Mexican-style chorizo (recipe follows)
Roasted salsa word (the recipe is as follows)
6 corn tortillas, 6 inches in diameter.
Black beans (recipe is as follows)
6 fried eggs.
Pico de Gallo Salsa Verde (the recipe is as follows)
Chopped fresh red pepper, for garnish.
Wrap the flour tartella tightly with foil and keep it warm in a 200 degree oven until the dish is ready to be collected.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large deep frying pan over high heat. Put homemade chorizo (or 1 pound of fresh Mexican chorizo) in a pan and cook, stirring, until golden brown, about 7 minutes. Add roasted salsa and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and boil until chorizo is cooked for 25 minutes.
Cover the sheet pan with paper towels. Put 2 inches of oil in a deep suit pan and heat on a deep fry thermometer to 350 degrees over medium heat. Fry the corn tortillas, one at a time, until lightly browned, for 30 seconds. Remove to a sheet pan and season with salt.
To serve, place the flour tartila on each plate and add some black beans. Top with a fried tartella and a few tablespoons of chorizo mixture. Place a fried egg on top of the chorizo, top with pico de gallo salsa verde and garnish with cilantro.
