Spicy Fusion Fried Rice

  • 8 oz. pork chorizo, casing removed
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 cups cooked white rice, chilled
  • 1/2 cup diced roasted red bell pepper
  • 2 T. Sriracha
  • 3 T. soy sauce
  • 1 T. sesame oil
  • 1 T. honey

In large skillet (a wok would also work well), cook the chorizo over medium heat. When it is finely crumbled and mostly cooked, add the diced onion and minced garlic to the skillet and sauté until softened.

Add the rice to the veggies and chorizo in the skillet and stir fry until the rice is coated with the drippings from the chorizo (add a small amount of bacon fat, oil, or butter if the rice isn't coated) and lightly fried. Add the diced roasted red bell pepper and toss to combine. Combine the Sriracha, soy sauce, sesame oil, and honey in a small bowl. (If needed, heat the honey slightly in the microwave to make it easier to stir into the mixture.) Add the Sriracha mixture over the top of the skillet and stir well. Stir fry for about 5 more minutes, or until rice is crisp.

Serve immediately along side additional Sriracha, for those wanting an even spicier dish.
