Executive Chef Junior Merino joined us in studio to cook up some spicy gourmet street food.
You can watch as he prepares tlayuda, or a Mexican pizza, in the video player above, or get his recipe below.
8-inch flour tortilla
½ cup mole sauce
1 cup of queso Chihuahua or can substitute with quesadilla cheese
½ crispy onions (deep fried green onions until crispy and salt to taste)
¾ to 1 cup of favorite toppings such as steak, shrimp or shredded chicken
2 oz. Crema Mexicana
Set your broiler on the stove to high while you prep this. Spread mole on the tortilla on a cookie sheet or sheet pan. Add the cheese and evenly distribute. Put under broiler until cheese melts then add toppings. Finish with crema Mexicana and chopped herbs.
