I must admit I was a little skeptical about eating a calf's tongue. What a pleasant surprise! The sweetness of the corn and tomatoes complimented the flavor of the meat. It was fantasic! If you don't tell your family what kind of meat is in the meal you won't have any leftovers!

I like beef tongue, but did not care for this. No one in my house would finish their serving. 3 hours to prepare and then you get some weird sweet taste with a small bit of spice from the peppers but nothing else.

I would like to say that this recipe is Wonderful! I do have just one "beef" Haha! Why doesn't anyone mention the boiling itself??? In my experience, the boiling water must be heavily seasoned or you lose all flavor in the meat. I like to boil my tongue in water that has proportionate boullion, dehydrated onions, garlic powder, lots of salt, and a little cayenne pepper, and half a bay leaf... I don't like to eat meat that taste like water...

I made this yesterday and really enjoyed it. The wife and one daughter only sampled it. Oh well. That leaves more for me. Next I think I will try pickling tongue and heart.

This was excellent, I used Anaheim chilies that I roasted over flame and fresh corn that was also flame roasted. The water that I used for boiling the tongue was also well seasoned with onions garlic and salt.

OMG this was so yummm. I have to say though I that I kicked it up some with a bit of cilantro and lime but even without it is good. Served it with corn tortilla's. Will be making this one again!
