Citizens, welcome to the Mexican “Ham and cheese sandwich”! You may think this is tex-mex, but no it is most authentically Mexican fare, I assure you!
As noted on 2 different top food blogs:
The sincronizadas can be seen as the Mexican version of a “sandwich with tortillas”; or the adorned cousins of the quesadillas ; as it consists of 2 tortillas that have in between a layer of melted cheese and a ham slice.
As you can see this is a very simple recipe… but they are very good – and when salsa is added to the sincronizadas, its flavor becomes phenomenal.
The beauty of the sincronizadas is that they can be eaten at any hour of the day. They can be served as appetizer, as breakfast and even as a main course.
In fact you can prepare a pretty and complete plate with a sincronizada accompanied of refried beans, mixed salad, guacamole and Mexican cream.”
TFD has chosen to pair his sincronizada recipe with the unique Chiapas Salsa!
This recipe consists of a simple salsa because few ingredients are used in its preparation and it is also important to highlight that it has an interesting thick consistency. The Chiapas style salsa is known as “pilico salsa”, although this is a name that is only used in Chiapas.
In the preparation basically the Simojovle chilies are combined with pumpkin seeds. The salsa’s texture is unmistakable and its flavor is very spicy.
The Simojovel pepper is a chili that is only grown in Chiapas it is of small size, its color is reddish and it has conical shape. The name that was assigned to the chili is due to its place of origin, the municipality of Simojovel, Chiapas.
The salsa is thickened with cornstarch and it cannot be substituted for maize flour. The salsa is delicious on chicken and other meats as well.
Citizens, enjoy my unique take on this recipe, which includes chopped pickled jalapeños and a unique mustard dipping sauce! 🙂
