Taco Tuesday: Cochinita Pibil

Taco Tuesday: Cochinita Pibil


You made it through Monday…you got all the way through the workday on Tuesday… right now you could use a treat. Welcome to Taco Tuesday at the Hot Stove Society!

For this class, Lexi, inspired by her cookbook crush on Superstar Chef Alex Stupak’s book, Tacos, will show you how to make a stunner of a taco menu featuring cochinita pibil. This is Yucatan style pork marinated with achiote paste, garlic, spices, and bitter orange juice then wrapped in banana leaves. This preparation makes the most luscious pulled pork for tacos imaginable.

Traditionally, cohinita pibil is made in Mexico by burying a suckling pig in a smoldering stone lined pit and cooking it for hours, but Lexi will show you how to get smoky, meltingly tender pork in your own home kitchen.

We’ll welcome you with a taste of quesadilla and salsa borracha- a boozy tomatillo & chile salsa.

As you watch Lexi demo, you’ll enjoy substantial tastes of everything she cooks. You’ll learn everything you need to know about how to pull off a fabulous taco feast, and you’ll go home with all the recipes- which is important, because this is the best idea for a dinner party we can think of.

What You’ll Learn: (demo only)

  • Mixed mushroom taco and epazote pesto, cotija and lime served on beet tortilla
  • Bay scallop ceviche taco with cocoa vinaigrette and avocado, served on a saffron tortilla
  • Black bean hummus taco with ayocote beans and avocado
  • Carrot taco with argan oil molé, goat cheese, and watercress
  • Cochinita pibil tacos- pork braised with banana leaves topped with pickled onions and salsa habanera
  • Seasonal sorbet- no demo just a tasty treat to end on a sweet note!
