    a gusta or te gusta? I used to know the language quite well. It's just not like riding a bike.
  • looks good beli.. .as i said to mike though. time set up a hot pizza stone. ..take your tortilla and brush it with olive oil, then put your stuff on it, fold it in half and put it in on your stone and flip it once. will come out nice and golden brown on both sides. . .

  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751

    Hey, Man! He's after a Tostada, not a crispy taco. :woohoo: Can't he just cook them flat? You probably wear pajamas when you cook yours, don't you?
  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466
    Beautiful, My Friend! Dang! I forgot the avocado! How did you cook the onions in vinegar? Skillet? Sauted? Those look great!

  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751

    Hey we have mission brand here in Ohio. My favorite to use. Glad to see they are good enough to be found in Mexico. I've had some really bad brands here before.

    Now I know what I'm having for dinner.
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    TKS Mike just get some boiling water & add a bit of vinegar, then add the onions thinly sliced ....cover & let them cook for a few minutes......3-4 min.

    Dave, just get some boiling water & add a bit of vinegar, then add the onions thinly sliced ....cover & let them cook for a few minutes......3-4 min.
  • you can go flat or folded if you want. . .i guess i like to fold mine cause its a lot easier to eat that way... stuff doesn't fall in your lap and make a mess that way!!! course, i do have a little bit of new yorker in me. ..i always fold my pizza slice in half as well so that stuff doesn't fall out either. . .
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 21,315
    really looks killer all dressed up with the avacados and stuff. :)
  • PWisePWise Posts: 1,173
    Good looking stuff Beli!! did you make the cochinita also? post the recipe hehehe...

  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Good least you won't have to make a decision for dinner anymore....
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    The smoky taste is awesome......combined with all the ingredients
  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466
    Well,...that explains it. Never been there. I guess you're the closest thing to New York I've ever been associated with. Do all of those folks wear pajamas?

  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466

    I just looked up Cochinita recipes. Man, that sounds like some good stuff. Maybe I can get Leroy to whip some up.
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Sorry Pato no recipe...must be suffering from amnesia......
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    :laugh: :laugh:
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Mike if you can get the "El Cazo" or "La Chata" brands those are the best for cochinita pibil, really good tasting & saves all the work if you haven't got the time to cook it all.
  • whats with the pajamas?? you get yourself a mensa card or somethin?? you is acting awful smart for a guy living outside in the texas heat!! i think the sun must be getting to that folically challenged melon of yours or somethin!!. . .anyways, try foldin one of them tostada things in half and see how much easier it is for you to eat ... not nearly so sloppy, and sharon won't have to be washing your shirts and PANTS not nearly so often. . .

    don't make me call chubby and have him post pictures now!!!
  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466
    Found La Chata online. $10 for a 14 oz can? Wow!
  • Lawn RangerLawn Ranger Posts: 5,466
    WAIT! "Who" won't have to wash my shirts and pants? :woohoo: :woohoo: You really do have a sense of humor. Sorry about the pajama jabs...slow day at the office and I was just looking to stir something up. Please don't bring Chubby into this. We can handle it ourselves.
  • you're stirring baby, you're stirring :woohoo: :woohoo:

    in the meantime, i'm surprised you didn't put any ocra and thousand island on those tostadas of yours!! :blink:
  • BeliBeli Posts: 10,751
    Mike, the cost here is about 3.00 dlls. remind me to bring you some if you are going to Atlanta.
  • GunnarGunnar Posts: 2,305
    I'm with Mike...the Cochinita Pibil looks great. The recipes vary quite a bit from web site to web site. I've never cooked with banana leaves. Can they just be any banana leaf; since I have some growing in the backyard?
