My dad uses his to make guacamole. It comes out soooo good.
In that second picture, it looks like the elder lady is making atole. Mmmm good stuff. Are those also tortilla presses in that pic?

my mom has one and she used to get down with the salsa. It always came out better when it was made in that than the blender.....sometimes she breaks down and just opens a can of ortega diced jalapenos and throws some tomatoe sauce garlic salt and whateva....but every time I go home to visit she breaks out "the rock".......

good topic tecpa.......

lol... that sounds way familiar. I get the "if she can't cook beans, don't marry her" version.

I know my Mom has one, and used to use it but hasn't in the longest time. More convenient to use a blender. No complaints. If she had it out, it'd just be another rock she can throw at me when i piss her off.

I have two molcajetes.

I have a little one and I use it for grinding spices or garlic.

The bigger one, I heat it up in the oven and use it to keep the frijoles or tortillas hot when I have lots of guests over for dinner.

Ok people lets get one thing straight.

A metate is a flat stone to grind corn on, among other things.

A molcajete is a stone in the form of a bowl to grind spices or make salsa.

I just had to make sure we get the names right. I odn't know why but it was irritating me.

Thank you...I was getting irritated as well with the mix up.

And props to those who continue using them in their different uses.

Thanks for clarifying. I thought they were different until people were telling me they were the same. Got confused for a while.

My grandma wants to give it to me bc she knows I'll take care it and she knows I won't sell it. LOL.

This metate from what I know it is from my great grand mother (native) who gave it to my grandma (white) bc she was marrying my grandpa (native).
