Things You Find in Every Mexican Kitchen
Your mom’s comal is always ready for standby.
Your Mexican kitchen isn’t complete without it.
Mom meant serious business when it came to her kitchen curtains.

She’d wash and swap them out every couple of weeks.
Decor was basically a complete lie… Everything was fake.
Fake fruit, fake flowers. They collected dust and smelled so weird.
Your fridge was covered in these…
Why so much fake fruit?
Mom held on to expired food.
Because “todavía está buena.”
Of course, you couldn’t open the fridge without seeing this…
All kinds of recycled containers. We call it Mexican Tupperware.
It’s not a Mexican kitchen without a Mexican calendar.

To remind your mom of all your cousin’s birthdays.
Salt shakers held more than salt.

Like random grains of rice.
Yeah, we have Tapatío and Valentina, but raw chiles were always available.

Because you never know when you’ll need more chile.
Let’s be real, mom used it to fake homemade salsa.

She never really used the molcajete.
There was always imported cheese.

Your tíos smuggled it every time they crossed the border.
For some reason, the stove was covered in foil.
It’s the equivalent of plastic wrapped sofas.
