Before all the Yucatecan food, we had a big barbacoa at the hacienda in Hidalgo. It's a hell of a lot of work but I don't think anyone who was there doubted that it was worth it.

This is garbanzos, some aromatics and water. To be seen again momentarily.

Gabriel adds the garbanzos to the pit and starts surrounding the whole with the softened, cooked maguey leaves.

The glorious meat. There was tongue but I didn't get a shot. It was all delicious but the consume was one of the best things I've ever eaten.

A nopalito salad. The pads were sliced almost razor thin.

I suspect it was to watch me and laugh, but I was "lucky" enough to get the "ojo". I was a sport and ate it but it was bland and the texture was like chicken cartlidge, or worse. i'm glad to have tried it but I'll be ok if this was the last time.
