I love Brent's molcajete, It is big and shallow, and does not include a pig face! and since I know he shops at the big mercado frequently I decided to head over to see if I could find one just like it! I couldn't!
which required me to taxi home rather than walk, this thing must weight 15/20lbs.
Well, Today I decided to make guacamole for a house warming I am going to tonight. I put the molcajete in the kitchen by the sink, and started roasting off the veggies I need, 1 serrano chile, 3 lg cloves garlic, 2 med tomatoes, 1/2 medium onion, I also prepped juice of 3 limes, 2 haas avacados, salt, and cilantro.
I started with the serrano, then added the onion, and then started adding the charred tomato halves one at a time. I muddled, I twisted, I pounded, I scrapped, until I thought my shoulder was gonna come loose - I then brought the food processor in, sat it next to the molcajete, transferred all the stuff, whizzed it for a few seconds, and VOILA! Guacamole.
Anyone want to buy a molcajete - Like New!
