Hot Chorizo Tamales

Ingredients

Tamales

Chorizo Filling

Salsa

Emeril's "Essence" Creole Seasoning (Bayou Blast)

Instructions

  1. Tamales: In a standing mixer, whisk the shortening until light and fluffy.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients together. Gradually stir in the stock and form a soft dough. With the mixer on medium, slowly add the dough mixture into the shortening, the mixture will be sticky. Drain the corn husks and pat dry.
  3. Tear 12 strips 1/6 inch wide from 2 of the husks for the tamales. Place 2 husks together with the large ends overlapping by 2 inches. Repeat for the remaining husks.
  4. Divide the tamale dough evenly between the husks and spread in the center, leaving 1 inch at each end uncovered. Place the chorizo mixture on top of the dough and roll the corn husks so that the filling is completely enclosed. Twist and tie each end with the 1/6-inch strips already torn off. Steam the tamales in a vegetable basket set in a saucepan and covered with a tight-fitting lid. Steam for 30 to 35 minutes.
  5. The tamales are done when the dough comes away from the sides. Place tamales on an over-sized platter, open 2 of the tamales leaving part of the husk on. Spoon the Salsa over the top. Garnish with fresh cilantro and Essence.
  6. Chorizo Filling: In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil. When the pan is smoking hot, sauté the onions, shallots, and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute. Add the chorizo and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Drain the oil and reserve the chorizo mixture.
  7. Salsa: In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
  8. Essence: Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
