Pedro Abad

We are already in the national month! Where the best festivities are held honoring the independence of Mexico and a tribute to the best Mexican food. There is no doubt that the best national dishes are prepared in each home, everyone has their favorite but we want to talk to you about its majesty: the pambazos.

Which has its origin in Orizaba, Veracruz, legend has it that it was created by a cook to impress Empress Carlota. But, its preparation and use also depends on the entity, for example, in Puebla and in areas of Veracruz itself, the pambazo is a white bread stuffed with sweet mole, or beans or sausage. It can also be tasted without filling and accompanied with a chocolate or coffee with milk.

Over the years the filling has also been innovating, some use suadero, ground meat, others shredded beef or have even been made with cochinita pibil. So if you're afraid to vary the filling a bit, you shouldn't, since like good Mexicans, trying new things and giving tasty twists to recipes is our thing.

So the time has come, take note and don't forget to put your final touch on it or change some ingredients of your choice. Our recommendation for preparation is with potatoes with chorizo, so before using the potatoes, boil them with salt for about 15 minutes. Let's go to the recipe!

  • 7 Don Zabor guajillo peppers
  • ¼ onion
  • Lard or vegetable oil

  3. Once you have the mixture, heat a pan with a little butter or vegetable oil, once it's hot, use a strainer to add the sauce and let it fry for a few minutes.
  4. Now prepare a pan to fry the chorizo, put the oil first and then add it. Stir constantly and let it brown a bit. Then, you integrate the cooked potatoes and crush them little by little on the saucepan and stir with the chorizo. After 10 minutes on the fire, when the mixture is ready, turn off and store.
  5. Now it's bread's turn! This part is exciting, with the guajillo pepper sauce done, you must cut the teleras or bolillos in half, varnish with a kitchen brush, do it on the top and bottom.
