Barbacoa Chipotle:

The Mexican Gastronomy – Everything You Need to Know About Barbacoa and Its Chipotle Cousin

The Mexican-style meal we know as barbecue in the United States is known as barbacoa in Mexico.

It's a complex cooking technique, but you've got the basics down. It involves smoke, steam, and meat.

A whole lamb or goat can be cooked for several hours over an underground fire, steamed in banana leaves with hoja santa (a broad-leafed herb), smothered with maguey sap to give it additional flavor.

Not everything is wrapped up in a blanket of foil; it's often simply wrapped in maguey leaves.

The mystery behind barbacoa chipotle is something that has taken me years to solve. It was one of the best-kept secrets on how they can take an unsightly cut of meat and transform it into tender, succulent pulled beef.

Barbacoa Chipotle is a dish that was reserved for special occasions in Mexico. Because it requires knowledge of how to remove all the hair, wool, and bugs from a lamb, it was a dish that was only prepared for Easter.

In Mexico, this version of barbecue has been made since the time of the Aztecs. If you think this recipe is long and tedious to prepare, I suggest you read through it carefully before starting the preparation process.

The barbacoa chipotle recipe I am about to share with you is the original recipe from the small ranchos of Northern Mexico.
