Pollos Adobados al Carbon— Pátzcuaro

Can't Post | Private Reply
 Not sure if this belongs here, or in the "El Bajío" Forum, but this feels right to me.

I went out to do some light shopping at Supermercado Codallos on the
Pátzcuaro Libramiento.
After I finished, I still didn't have anything with which to cook a
deliciously inspired meal.
I realized that my moment of opportunity had come, to at last try the
tempting, char-grilled pollos adobados that I had often seen for sale
along the road, across from Frutería del Valle y Refacciones, not far
below Automotriz Garvez. This is below the cuota junction but above
the Health and Fitness Club.

The unnamed chicken stand was there, all right, although I missed
seeing it on my first pass. I turned the car around at a paradero and
parked at the frutería.

The whole pollos cost $60MXP, a bargain, considering that they come
with frijoles, two salsas (a yellow one of chile perón, and a thin,
garlicky and tasty red, which I preferred.) and hot tortillas. All is
carefully and well packed. When I got the bags home, I cut them open
with scissors and plopped the contents into appropriate bowls.

The chicken is reddish with the adobo, with some especially savory
charred spots. Cebolletas asadas are included, if you ask. They are
great plump ones, among the best we've had anywhere, with a squirt of
limón and a sprinkle of salt on the nicely charred surfaces.
The chicken was delicious, the beans nice and plump, and best of all,
HOT. Even the tortillas de maíz were ok (I find tortillas in general
to be substantially boring—with a few exceptions)

So, when you are out and about and hungry on the Pátzcuaro
Libramiento, you might want to stop and pick up a chicken. Don't
forget the cebolletas.
