I cherish the beauty in culture and what it offers. Mexican cuisine is filled with technique and rich in creativity. Women in our town would stretch these by hand and lay them on a hot chimney made from clay, fired by mountain, hand picked wood. They were paired with a sweet hot beverage or made into buñuelos. These flour tortillas are soft, tender, delicate and delicious. If this is the first time you make them, don’t get frustrated, grow familiar with the process. There is only a few ingredients but the outcome is perfect in every way.

Everything tastes better in a molcajete because of all the natural oils released when the ingredients are crushed. A salsa made in a molcajete holds great value in the heart of people who love Mexican cuisine. My mother didn’t own a blender for a long time and she used a molcajete to make all her dishes. I still remember the aromas released into the back patio, where she made her dishes on a chimney made from clay. Believe me, it cannot get more authentic than this. If you feel inspired to purchase your own, congratulations. Just make sure you cure it before using it.
Great things happen when we make carne asada; it is an entire event. Carne asada simply means “grilled meat” but there is nothing simple about its flavors.

Everyone will love you for it!
