Chorizo Cotija Stuffed Pretzel Bites

Preparation Time

50 minutes

Cooking Time

15 minutes

Yields

32 pretzel bites

Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 1½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of sugar
  • 1¼ teaspoon of quick-rise instant yeast
  • ½ cup of warm water

For the filling:

  • 2 oz. of our pork chorizo
  • ¼ cup of crumbled cotija cheese

For the topping:

  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter
  • Coarse sea salt

For the chorizo portion, we’ll be using our own authentic Mexican pork chorizo.

Directions

For the dough:

  • Place all ingredients for the dough into a bowl, mix well, and knead for about five minutes until the dough is soft and slightly sticky. If it’s too sticky, add a tablespoon of flour.
  • Place the dough in a large bowl, cover, and let it rest for 30 minutes. During this time, prepare the filling and topping.
  • After 30 minutes, preheat your oven to 400°F and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Lightly grease your working surface and divide the dough into two equal pieces.
  • Next, roll the dough into three ropes and widen them to about three inches wide.
  • Add a layer of crumbled cotija cheese and chorizo down the middle of each rope with room on the edges.
  • Carefully pinch the sides of the dough with your fingers to enclose the ropes.
  • Cut the ropes into 14 to 16 portions.
  • Transfer the pretzel bites into a large bowl and pour the topping solution on top.
  • Let them sit for 15 seconds, then place them onto the baking sheets and lightly sprinkle coarse sea salt on top.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush them with melted butter, sprinkle with more sea salt, and enjoy!’

 

For the filling:

  • While the dough is resting, cook the chorizo over medium heat for seven to 10 minutes.
  • Transfer into a small bowl lined with a paper towel to soak up any grease and set aside.

For the topping:

  • As the dough rests, combine the boiling water and baking soda, stir, and set aside.
