Country Boys' Chorizo Huaraches from 'New York à la Cart'

Kate Williams 1 comment

Huaraches are my new favorite Mexican street food. But what's a huarache you ask? Picture a slightly thick, massively oversize homemade tortilla. Then picture this tortilla stuffed with refried beans. Then add more beans, spicy chorizo, cheese, lettuce, salsa, and tomatoes on top. Make it hot. Make it crisp. Make it over-the-top. And, thanks to Alexandra Penfold and Siobhan Wallace's new book, New York à la Cart, you can make this version, from Red Hook's popular Country Boys truck, in your own kitchen. More

Dinner Tonight: Huaraches with Black Beans and Radish

The tender huaraches were slightly blackened from the griddle, just like my favorite pizzas, and topped with a fiery salsa balanced by tender mushrooms and cream. I've been dreaming of them lately, so I really couldn't pass up this version of the dish from Rick Bayless's newest cookbook. More

A Fine Huarache When the Red Hook Soccer Fields Are Off

New York Ed Levine 4 comments
