A Mexico Pambazo Un Pambazo Mexicano


Pambazos are eaten mostly in special occasions such as birthdays, holidays, parties etc. Me and my family don’t really eat it too often but just once in a while. A reason why we don’t eat it too often is because making pambazos is pretty complicated but the results are great! 

The pambazo is a delicious traditional Mexican styled sandwich filled with papas con chorizo inside, served with lettuce, cheese and cream (if you want) and dipped and fried in a red guajillo spicy sauce.

    Un Pambazo Mexicano


    Los pambazos se consumen principalmente en ocasiones especiales como cumpleaños, días festivos, fiestas, etc. Mi familia y yo no lo comemos muy a menudo, solo de vez en cuando. Una razón por la que no lo comemos con frecuencia es porque hacer pambazos es bastante complicado, ¡pero los resultados son geniales!

    El pambazo es un delicioso sándwich tradicional mexicano relleno de papas con chorizo, servido con lechuga, queso y crema (si lo deseas), y sumergido y frito en una salsa picante de guajillo rojo.


    • 2 ½ tazas de papas
    • 3 chiles guajillo, sin semillas y venas
    • 2 chorizos (cada uno de 3 oz.)
    • 2 cucharadas de aceite vegetal
    • 1 diente de ajo
    • 8 granos de pimienta negra
    • ½ cucharadita de orégano mexicano
    • 6 telera o panecillos Kaiser cortados a lo largo
    • 1 ½ taza de lechuga iceberg rallada
    • ¼ taza de queso desmenuzado
    • 2 cucharadas de crema mexicana
    • Sal al gusto (la cantidad que desees)
