When Hubby and I got married two years ago my cousin got us a molcajete from Williams Sonoma. We had recently discovered that we loved guacamole and were so excited to make it “the real” way. That is all I’ve ever used my molcajete for. As far as we were concerned, molcajete = guacamole maker. But now that we’re in Mexico, we’ve discovered it has a lot more uses than to just make awesome guac. In addition to having guacamole made at our table, we’ve also enjoyed freshly-made salsa and stew made and served in a molcajete. Newly aware of its additional uses, I thought I would do some recipe research to share. Here’s what I’ve found:
Rudy’s Molcajete Mixto Recipe – a mixed grill of carne asada, nopales, chicken, shrimp, jalapenos, and chorizo sausage served with queso fresco, avocado, and lime
Mexican Style Meat and Vegetable Stew – a chicken, flank steak, and bacon in a tomato based broth
Seafood Molcajete Recipe – shrimp, scallops, and chicken sausage served hot and spicy in the molcajete
Currently our molcajete is in a storage unit in Augusta, Georgia but once it’s out, I promise to try these and share how they go.
