Cooking Pambazo in Mexico Cooking Pambazos in San Miguel, Mexico.
I received an email from my friend Hal the other day telling me about the Pambazos he found  during one of his visits to San Miguel, Mexico.  Hal is a fantastic chef & always ready to try something new in the kitchen.

He shared a few photos of the women cooking Pambazos in an inverted "sombrero" cooker called a comal.  The enchilada and the red sauce is in the "crown" depression and they drag everything through it and then finish around the "brim."  

This set me on a mission to learn a bit more about making the Pambazo sauce.  So here we go ... let's make a Pambazo ... yum!
