This is a homemade plant-based, vegan-friendly riff on a classic chorizo-sweet potato taco that packs a blast of spicy umami bliss in every bite. It arrives at your door ready to be tucked into corn tortillas and garnished with lime, onion, cilantro, and three salsas!
Chef Alex Stupak rose to fame as one of the country’s hottest pastry chefs during his time at Chicago’s acclaimed Clio and Alinea and NYC’s wd-50. One day, however, he took a step back, asked himself, “What do I love to eat the most?” and decided to go confidently in the direction of his answer: Tacos! He opened Empellón to widespread critical acclaim in New York’s West Village in 2011, and it remains a certified hotspot.
