I don’t know about you guys but I can’t take another fiesta full of tacos, quesadillas, nachos, or burritos. There’s nothing wrong with these classics, they’ve just been done before, I’m over it. I’m swipin’ right and turning my head toward the super hot Oaxacan street food, tlayuda. It’s kind of like pizza in the build but the ingredients are an alluring combination of smoky chorizo, cumin-y beans, melty mozzarella, and creamy avocado. If your relationship with Mexican food is as stale as left-out tortilla chips after Cinco de Mayo, arrange a rendezvous with something new. Let me introduce you to tlayuda.
- Heat and chop - Place a pan over high heat and drizzle with oil. Chunk up your chorizo and rough chop the garlic.
- Toast the tortilla - Toss a tortilla into the hot pan and fry for about 1 minute on the first side, flip, and fry 1 more minute. If it puffs up, smoosh the bubbles down with a spatula. Cook until well browned and firm. Remove from the pan and place on a plate. Fry up the second tortilla the same way, and place it on another plate.
- Cook your toppings - Add chorizo to the pan and season with salt. Meanwhile chunk up your mozzarella into small bits and set aside. Once the chorizo is cooked, remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon to a plate, leaving the fat in the pan. Add the garlic to your pan and cook for 30 seconds. Add the beans, with juices, to the garlic. Season with salt and stir to combine.
