How ever we first started with guacamole appetizer that we made are self along with Chaya lemon with sugar to drink.
To make the guacamole we took a stone bowl. Add two guacamole’s, half a cup of tomato cubes , two tablespoons of diced onions, half a lemon squeezed, pinch of salt and a dash of black pepper.
Along with a stone spoon and crushed it all up and served with fresh tortilla chips.
Following that next we moved in to Ix-Kool Restaurant kitchen and started grinding the corn to make fresh tortillas . We used a athletic Maya stone table with stone rolling pin to grind the corn. Now just add water and roll up to size of golf size balls. Than take a banana leaf to top and bottom in tortilla hand press and your ready to cook.
At Ix-Kool Restaurant we Cook on flat iron pan for about about three minutes on each side. Along with a knife slice a hole in the side to separate the sides. Finally take spoon and load the beans in the center and then take your fingers smooth the beans to cover all the corners.You now have a whats called Salbute.
