I was looking at the new 10" deep dish stoneware baking dish I'd just purchased trying to decide what to use it for. I personally like to use a cast iron skillet to make dip dish pizzas. And I was not even in the mood for pizza... I thought about making sweet potato fries. With the deep lip I would not have to worry about them flipping off when I flipped them with a spatula. Then I thought about making some kind of desert in it... Then I decided to just make a pizza like dish. Because after all it is labeled as a deep dish pizza pan, so pizza kept sticking in my mind. So defeated by thoughts of unwanted pizza I went with a New Mexican Deep Dish? It would be more casserole than Pizza. I could count that as a push rather than a defeat! And the Pie? Well it was a win for taste buds around the world! Enjoy!
4 burrito size flour tortillas
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive oil
8 oz Don Juan New york style chorizo
1/4 cup Salsa (I used mango habanero but it is your choice)
2 Tomatillos (chopped)
1/3 cup roasted corn
1 Anaheim pepper (seeded, chopped)
2 Purple potatoes (chopped)
2 Chipotles in de arbol sauce (diced)
3/4 cup Chipotle cheddar (shredded)
3/4 cup pepper jack (shredded)
3/4 cup mild cheddar (shredded)
1 large Shallot (chopped)
1 tsp dried cilantro
1/8 tsp ground cumin
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
1 jalapeno seeded (diced)
2 green onions (chopped)
Rub tortillas with olive oil and split 3 of them in half. Lay 1 whole tortilla in the bottom of your 10" deep dish pizza pan or cast iron skillet. Use 5 of the halves on the sides of the dish and the last half in the center to even it all out.
Preheat oven to 400 Degrees.
In a medium skillet over medium heat cook chorizo, potatoes, Anaheim pepper, tomatillos and seasonings for 10 minutes, stirring often. Let mixture cool for 3 minutes.
Mix cheeses together in a medium bowl.
Pour mixture into a medium mixing bowl and toss with all ingredients except cheese. Pour mixture into your tortilla crust and sprinkle cheese over the top. Place on middle baking rake and bake for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
Mix together green onion, jalapeno and cilantro in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the top of pie during the last 5 minutes of baking.
