AHOGADA SAUCE: * Place Del Real Foods' Salsa De Molcajete, canned tomatoes, and the salsa roja from the taco kit in a pot at medium low heat to reduce. Once it has reduced by 1/4th, blend until smooth consistency, and set aside. * Place the Al Pastor meat to cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the liquid evaporates. Remove from heat and set aside. SALSA CRIOLLA: * Thinly slice the red onion, and place in a non-reactive bowl. Combine 1 cup of Rice Wine Vinegar, 1/2 cup lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt with the onions, cover, and set aside for at least 10 minutes. HABANERO ESCABECHE: * Thinly slice the habaneros in rounds and place in a non-reactive bowl. In a small pot, place the 3 Tbsp of honey, 1/2 cup of Rice Wine Vinegar, and bring to a boil. Once the mixture boils, remove from heat and pour on top of the chiles. Set aside uncovered for at least 10 minutes. MULITAS: * On a griddle or cast-iron pan, add 2 Tbsp of oil and place a tortilla on the oil. On top of the tortilla spread about 2 Tbsp of Queso Oaxaca, crumble 1Tbsp of Cotija on top, add 2 heaping Tbsp of Al Pastor meat. Top the meat with 1 Tbsp of Queso Oaxaca, and place another tortilla on top. When the bottom tortilla gets crispy, flip over with a spatula and crisp the second tortilla. PLATING: *Cut the mulitas in half and place them in a criss cross pattern on the plate. Ladle the sauce on top of the mulitas. Grate about 1 Tbsp of Cotija cheese on top. Place two slices of avocado on top of each mulita. Place a spoonful of the onions on top of the avocados. Top with a few slices of habaneros, and garnish with a couple cilantro leaves on top. Enjoy!
