Mixiotes on a Saturday morning

Mixiotes are a style of Mexican cuisine in which marinated meat or vegetables are cooked in a bag made of banana leaves or waxed paper.  The food comes out moist and tender, with a strong flavor from the herbs and sauce that it’s cooked with and similar to a stew but with better texture.  And it’s great when used to fill a taco!

There’s a place over in Roma Sur that does a nice weekend brunch with mixiotes (it’s on the interactive map).  Sure, they don’t use banana leaves any more, but the food is so awesome I doubt anyone minds.  The chicken, combined with some cheese and an avocado, makes for an excellent blue corn taco… #700, as it turned out!
