  1. As regards to the Soy Sauce mention in Fajitas: I was at the local mexican restaurant and ordered fajitas always wondering what the salty brown sauce was on the bottom of the cast iron that made it so good. I always thought it was the caramelized peppers and onions coupled with the oil and juice that made it. That is until I saw my fajitas sizzling ready to be brought to me and the waitress grabbed the plate and squirted some brown sauce all over the fajitas so it smoked and sizzle some more.

    Thanks to your post and that memory I now know the secret brown sauce is Soy Sauce.

  2. Soy sauce isn’t so strange for Mexican foods, they use Maggi Seasoning (Maggi Jugo) there which used to be soy sauce until about a decade ago (it’s now hydrolyzed vegetable protein).

    Not sure I get why you would want seasoned scoops, they are pretty much designed as a vessel for carrying something else, why would I want it seasoned to interfere with that? Eating scoops by themselves is a rather unpleasant task due to the shape.
