When you find yourself this summer with all the salsa makings from the farmer's market but not a chip to dip into it, head to El Burrito Mercado. You'll find the fresh masa to make tamales, corn husks to wrap them in, whole achiote seeds to season them with, every chile you ever wanted (dried ancho, chipotle, guajillo, and pasilla; fresh jalapeño, habanero, poblano, and serrano) to spice them up, a mortar and pestle to make your grinding authentic, big earthenware bean pots, and everything you need to keep you busy until all the salsa is gone.
