    How hard is it to clean a molcajete after treating it this way? Because I'm tempted. Just getting the cheese out of the nooks and crannies afteward, or cracking the molcajete when you add the salsa both sound a little daunting.

    The concept is interesting, a and any time I've seen the likes the food looked yummy... But it makes me wretch just thinking about it from the POV of your question. No matter how traditional it may be my stomach just isn't up to the risks involved. I'd guess that the residue gets burned off, but nonetheless...

    I thought the cheese was on top, but yeah looks like they sterilize it by fire.
