4 portions
  • 4 cups romeritos
  • 2 cups nopal, cut into strips
  • 1/2 white onions
  • 1 pinch baking soda, for Arm & Hammer ™ Cooking
  • 2 cups potato cambray, peeled
  • 1 cup Dry shrimp
  • 1 egg
  • enough oil, to fry
  • 2 cups Mole Poblano
  • to taste salt


Place the Romeritos in a saucepan with a little water. Cook them over medium heat without being completely cooked.
In a pot, place the nopales and the onion. Cover with water and add Arm & Hammer ™ Sodium Baking Soda together with salt. Let them boil over high heat, reduce the flame, cover and cook over low heat until soft, in a span of between 15 and 20 minutes.
Cook the potatoes in boiling water until they soften and you can easily chop them with a fork, about 15 minutes.
Cut the heads and tails of the shrimp and reserve them. Soak the shrimp in hot water for 10 minutes.
Dry grind heads and shrimp tails. Beat the egg to the nougat point and mix it with the shrimp powder. Form pancakes and fry in oil.
In a large pot, dissolve the mole paste in the water in which the shrimp was soaked.
Add the romeritos, nopales, potatoes and shrimp. Cook over medium heat and season with salt to taste.


Serve romeritos with shrimp pancakes and nopales.


Arm & Hammer Sodium Bicarbonate helps to remove excess slime from nopales and retains its green color.
