- 2 lbs of Mollejas (Sweetbreads) (explanation of Mollejas is below) shopping list
- juice of 3 limes shopping list

How to make it
- Soak the Mollejas in water for 10 minutes and then perform a quick blanch on them.
- Mollejas are commonly called Sweetbreads. It is a gland from the cow. Don't let that turn you off, they are DELICIOUS.
- Get out your Molcajete (mortar & pestle) or a food processor and combine the rest of the ingredients to form a paste.
- Congratulations, you just made an "achiote paste" or as the Mexicans call it "recado rojo".
- When the Mollejas are finished blanching, drain, and dry them off with a paper towel.
- Rub the Mollejas with the Achiote Paste and allow to sit for 10 minutes (while you fire up your charcoal grill.)
- When your Charcoal grill is hot and ready, place the Mollejas on the grill and grill for 10-15 minutes on each side until crispy, but not burnt.
- Once Mollejas are done, slice into strips and serve with flour or corn tortillas.
