WATCH: Traditional molcajete guacamole tostadas (RECIPE)
There is a beautiful molcajete in my kitchen that was handed down to me by my mother and I consider it a treasure, a family heirloom even. It's been in my life for as long as I can remember and I never intend to get rid of it. It reminds me of my childhood and puts a smile on my face every time I glance at it, but the sad truth is that I rarely use it. It has become more of a decorative dust collector than anything, I'm not sure why I don't pull it out more often, but my buddy Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack from Muy Bueno Cookbook posted an awesome video recipe for molcajete guacamole tostadas that has me dustin' off my favorite molcajete in the world and using it to make something delicious.
You are going to love this recipe which makes the perfect appetizer for any gathering and is super fast to put together.
