It really is a complete breakfast, brunch or even dinner. It’s an easy dish to make and the outcome is Delicioso! as a result, Everyone will rave about them and I’m almost sure they will become an instant hit.
Roasting ingredients for salsa
My preferred method for roasting ingredients is on a comal because it develops a beautiful char that turns into flavor. Roasting the ingredients is a very popular cooking technique that concentrates and deepens the flavor. Traditionally, ingredients such as tomatoes, jalapeños, garlic, onion, tomatillos, herbs and spices are roasted across Mexico.
What is a comal?
A comal is a smooth flat griddle which is present in the majority, if not all, kitchens in Mexico. Growing up my mom used it as a stove top since we didn’t own an actual stove. My father built a handmade chimney from clay with an open top which served to hold the comal. To use, you would start a fire inside and allow the comal to become hot. In fact, almost every household had one of these for daily use or as a luxury. People all around Mexico use these handmade chimneys to make tortillas, roast ingredients and cook meals that taste luxurious.
Ways to roast ingredients
When you fry the corn tortillas
You can use homemade or store-bought corn tortillas. When frying, the edges will crisp up but the center will remain soft. The time it takes to fry them will depend on the thickness of the tortilla but they should not end up crispy like a tostada.
Servings per person
Typically we serve 2 per person but these are so good! I can’t promise two will be enough.
