Mexican Sweet Breads




Have you ever had Mexican sweet breads? They are really good. They are dense breads that are good for dunking into milk or tea much like a cookie but it's bread. I've found that if I pop them in the microwave for about 30 seconds they soften right up and I like them that way much better. 

The brown ones are called Conchas. That's the only one that I'm sure of their name. They come in different colors, white, brown and pink. There might be other colors but those are the ones I've seen. 

We can usually find these in most of the grocery stores but they only have a limited selection of them. If you want to see a larger selection of them you have to go to a Mexican market. We like doing part of our grocery shopping there anyway because the prices on the meat and the fresh produce is almost half of that in the big chain grocery stores. Plus we find marinated meats for Fajitas and other dishes that we just can't find any other places. 

Have you ever shopped at a Mexican market or tried Mexican sweetbreads?


And yes, I know the sweetbreads aren't good for me but you have to have a little treat now and then. lol

  4. I never had these before and hadn't heard of it before. You don't see a lot of Mexican shops or markets here, at least I can't remember ever seeing one. I'll have to see if I can find a recipe to make these myself as now I do want to try them! They look delicious!

  9. I've heard of Sweet Bread, but never tried it. We do have a Mexican Market in the city so maybe next time we go to Detroit I'll add a visit to the market to my list so I can try this.
