No conseguí papel aluminio, hoja de aguacate, piernas, ni tomate, así que adapté todo. Primero, use jitomate y adapté las cantidades para 6 muslos. Hice todo y agregue un poco de agua para licuar, porque el jugo se consumió con la sazonada. Por último, use una cacerola de acero inoxidable, en la que metí pollo, salsa y nopales, la amarre con su tapa muy apretada y después la puse a baño maría... ¡Deliciodo súper mixiote! Muchas gracias!
