  • Re: Anybody have experience cooking with cactus

    The Molcajete is made of volcanic stone, so you can put it directly on fire to heat it up, and finish your dish.

    Normally, you cook everything as you normally do, and at the end put it inside the hot molcajete with tomatillo sauce (green tomato).

    Regarding the cactus (we call it "Nopal" in Mexico), you cook them directly on the grill, while the coals are still high. It's done when it bends by itself and the outside skin is a little bit charred. Put some garlic salt, and lime on it, and enjoy!
  • Re: fajitas...tortilla experiment

    A friend of mine found some uncooked tortilla flats at the store the other day and we pan fried them. I must say that they were a good tasting bridge in the gap between store-bought and fresh-made for the culinary challenged like myself.
    You can sprinkle some cane sugar and cinnamon over them, pour some "piloncillo" honey or maple sirup, and enjoy some good "buñuelos".
