from The Century Dictionary.
- noun A covered pot, stew-pan, or kettle used in braizing.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Watch them make the enchiladas and you'll realize that with the temperatures achieved by the fat in his propane fired braizer, no bacteria is going to survive.
Anyway, the vendor is a young woman and she presses out the fresh masa to make the tortilla, fills it with whatever you want, but her mole is good, then seals it and slides it into the hot oil that fills the well in her comal/braizer and fries them until golden brown.
