FYI Hector's taco shop in Spring valley

In the latest issue of the free weekly el latino, it advertises itself as

with a picture of an interesting mole.
The people of Tlaxcala allied themselves with Cortes in 1520 - without their help the group of spaniards possibly would not have been able to take Tenochitlan.

Today Tlaxcala is the smallest of the united mexican states. Leucadian didnt you get a cookbook about the state?

I am out that way occasionally for the sis but if any you easterners care to check it out - it be much appreciated.

  1. I do indeed have a Conaculta cookbook called 'La Cocina familiar en el Estado de Tlaxcala'. You have a superior memory. It starts off with tamales de maiz verde, which is a chicken tamal with tomates verdes (tomatillos) in the masa. There are a couple of recipes using squash blossom (flor de calabaza). I haven't cooked from the book, but I could be tempted to try the resto when I'm in the neighborhood.
