WP Allergens Plugin for WordPress

The WP Allergens plugin for WordPress is currently in “alpha” status, and is unavailable for use. (Dec. 9, 2019)

The WP Allergens plugin for WordPress is being developed as a method for using the Erudus Extended Allergy Icon Font with other plugins intended for displaying recipes or restaurant menus within thw WordPress platform. The WP Allergens font doesn’t natively offer the features of those other types of plugins, but instead is intended to be used alongside them.

Following is an example using WP Recipe Maker.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb Pork chorizo raw, mild
  • 1 cup Onion chopped
  • 1 12.5oz can Black beans drained, rinsed
  • 1 12.5oz can Corn, whole kernel drained
  • 2 cans Green chiles, diced drained
  • 2 cans Tomatoes, petite diced drained
  • 2 cups Cilantro, fresh chopped
  • 6 cups Mexican cheese blend, finely shredded
  • 12 each Tortillas, 8" flour or corn
  • Sour cream for topping (optional)
  • Mexican cheese blend, finely shredded for topping (optional)
  • Salsa for topping (optional)

Instructions

  • In a high-wall skillet over medium heat, cook the chorizo and onion for about 15 minutes, until the meat has crumbled completely. (With good chorizo, it will not change color.) Place a stack of paper towel or a lint-free cloth on a plate. Transfer the cooked meat to the plate and allow the oil to drain.
  • In a high-wall skillet over medium heat, cook the chorizo and onion for about 15 minutes, until the meat has crumbled completely. (With good chorizo, it will not change color.) Place a stack of paper towel or a lint-free cloth on a plate. Transfer the cooked meat to the plate and allow the oil to drain.
  • Dump the two cans of refried beans into a sauce pan, stirring occasionally, and heat just until smooth. Remove from the heat. (This allows for the refried beans to be used more easily in the next step.)
  • Use lard or vegetable shortening (lard is preferable) to grease two 13″ x 9″ x 2″ glass casserole dishes. Lay two tortillas in each one. On the tortillas in each dish, spread one-quarter of the refried beans, followed by one-quarter of the meat mixture, one-quarter of the cilantro, and one cup of the shredded cheese. Top each with two more tortillas, and then build a second layer identical to the first. Top with the remaining tortillas and one more cup of cheese each.
  • Cover each dish with aluminum foil, being sure to “tent” the foil upward in the middle so it isn’t contacting the top layer of cheese.
  • Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Let set for 5 minutes before serving. Top each serving with sour cream, more shredded cheese, salsa, or other optional toppings.

Notes

  • Play around with the ingredients. Increase or decrease the seasonings to taste, use hot chorizo if you’d like, or even top each serving with a fried egg. The possibilities are endless.
  • Replacing the chorizo with cubes of slow-cooked beef tongue seasoned with taco seasoning would make for another authentic version, as would using pulled pork or chunks of slow-cooked pork belly seasoned in the same manner.
  • This makes a lot of Taco Casserole. You can also do the assembly in the same size foil casserole pans, cover with foil, then freeze immediately to cook at a later date.

At this point embedding the WP Allergens shortcode into the Notes area of WP Recipe Maker isn’t quite rendering correctly from the Print link within the recipe itself. This is true even if the font is installed on the device the Print function is called from. However, if the browser’s Print function is used, the allergen font is printed as seen within the browser.

Following is the same set of icons, used as a WP Allergens shortcode within a Restaurant Menu block from the Gutentor plugin.
