Casa de Colores School of Traditional Mexican Cooking

A Unique Culinary Adventure in Cabo

Archive for November, 2010


Yes, I am crazy busy all of a sudden… but I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for their interest in traditional Mexican cooking classes here at the Casa de Colores.  I never cease to be amazed and impressed with the power of the Internet, and with blogging in particular.  I find myself in my colorful Cabo kitchen cooking with people from Dallas, Boston… and points North, South, East and West, all thanks to this media.

I had a wonderful couple from Dallas today, and we started off at my favorite traditional tortilleria where they shared a really special treat — a hand made fresh masa quesadilla stuffed with tinga de pollo (chicken shredded in a red sauce) and queso asadero (a string cheese that melts beautifully).  The ladies behind the counter asked if they would like a scoop of ensalada de nopalitos (cactus paddle salad) with that, and being culinarily adventurous, naturally they accepted!  MAN, was that a good quesadilla!  Between that and the free samples of freshly baked,hand-pressed tortillas with homemade salsa made from morita chiles (the little brother of the chipotle, not as smoky and a beautiful berry red with a good slow burn)… we left the El Mexicano Tortilleria well fed — and that was before we ever started to cook!

So BUEN PROVECHO to all, and to all a good night.  Let’s do it again tomorrow!
