This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in November of 2018. The comal — also known as a budare — is a smooth, flat or concave griddle with origins dating back to the ancient Aztecs. Made of metal or earthenware, it's ideal for cooking flatbreads, searing meats, and toasting nuts or seeds. Use one of these versatile pans to prepare authentic Mexican tortillas, try your hand at making tostones, or throw together a batch of empanadas or quesadillas.
