Blue Corn Piñon Pancake Mix // Sante Fe Culinaria // Santa Fe, NM
The Southwest’s busiest breakfast joints have been griddlin’ up Culinaria’s two-stepping blend of New Mexico’s iconic kernels — Hopi blue corn and piñon pine nuts — for twenty years. Now’s your chance to join the hoedown. Alas, the cakes ain’t turquoise — or even blue — but, sweet and nutty with a hearty chew, they still have all the spirit of the southwest. Whip a cup of mix, a half-cup of milk, an egg, and a glug of oil until barroom dance floor–smooth (that is, *just* lump-free enough). Then ladle on a skillet or pour into an iron until the edges bubble, and serve with fresh fruit and, no yankee tree-tappers here, agave cactus nectar.
