Guy Fieri Visits the W.O.W. Cafe to Try Their Huevos Rancheros 02:06
Guy Fieri visits the W.O.W. (Worth Our Weight) cafe to try their huevos rancheros. The head chef at W.O.W. started out as a chef educator at a juvenile detention center and opened the W.O.W. cafe to give underserved youth an opportunity to gain experience in the restaurant industry. One of the chefs, Nick Wilkinson, walks Guy through the prep for making huevos rancheros. He starts by rubbing salt and pepper on a large pork butt, which he roasts at 500 degrees F for 45 minutes. After it’s cooked, carrots, onions, dried chipotle peppers and water are added before it’s cooked for about more eight hours at 200 degrees F. Nick then makes the pico de gallo, which includes diced red onion, chopped tomato, diced jalapeno pepper, cilantro, salt, pepper and lime juice. Three tortillas are then toasted on the grill. Black beans are cooked with onions, carrots and a bit of pico de gallo juice. Nick adds shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses to the tortillas. He then makes the eggs in a pan with olive oil, butter, cheddar cheese and Monterey jack cheese. The tortillas are put on a plate and topped with black beans and the eggs, with some of the pork and pico de gallo served on the side.
