Step Two: Make Chorizo

Feed cubed pork and bacon through the coarse plate of your Weston Meat Grinder. Mix the meat with the remaining ingredients and run the mixture through the medium grinder plate. Cover and refrigerate.

There is nothing like chorizo made with freshly ground meat

Step Three: Tenderize & Flatten Turkey

Run the turkey breast through your Weston Meat Cuber/Tenderizer once.

It might not look like much here, but this turkey breast, newly flattened by our tenderizer, is bound for greatness

Step Four: Stuff Turkey

Lay the turkey breast flat and spread a 1/4" thick layer of ground chorizo over the turkey. Roll the turkey up tightly, then use twine to tie it tight.

Step Five: Smoke

Lay the turkey roll over your Smoker rack and smoke at 250 for 2 hours, or until the internal temperature of both the turkey and chorizo reaches 165. Brush the turkey with the tequila mixture every half hour.

Step Six: Prepare Plantain Pancakes

While the turkey smokes, peel and chop the plantain into 1" pieces. Use a Weston Potato Ricer to mash them. Place a heaping dollop of the mashed plantain into the center of a hot skillet, coated with a little oil. Use a spatula to push the mashed plantain into a  1/2" thick pancake (about 4" diameter - doesn't need to be a perfect measurement). Fry on each side 3-5 minutes, until well-browned. Repeat for the rest of the better. Cover and set aside.

Plantain pancakes are super easy and make for an excellent substitute for a bun

Step Seven: Slice

Once the chorizo-stuffed turkey is to temperature, allow it to rest for about a half hour, remove the twine, then use a Weston Meat Slicer to slice it into 1/4" thick slices.

If needed, toss the pancakes back into a hot skillet for a minute on each side, just to warm. Serve the chorizo-stuffed turkey slices on the pancakes and top with spicy peanut sauce.
