Dan and I LOVE the molcajete that is served at a local Mexican restaurant! I have been wanting to try making it at home and finally bit the bullet...and I'm SO glad I did!
Molcajete is actually the name of the bowl. It's sold as a mortar and pestle and is made from volcanic rock. I bought two of them and if I had known how much work it would be to clean them for their initial use I would have been tempted to just make fajitas! :-)
I'm really glad that I did it in the end though! It was delicious and a real treat to have it in the comfort of our own home.
There are hundreds of recipes that can be prepared in the molcajete. The one that I tried turned out so much like the restaurant version! I found it here!
