"Sak k'óol" or Pebre is a traditional dish from the state of Yucatán, which can be made with turkey or chicken. It is cooked in a pot with xcatic chilli, onion, and roasted garlic. Then, these ingredients are removed to prepare the "k'óol," made with flour and broth, to which raisins, olives, and capers are added. Afterwards, the turkey or chicken is marinated, roasted, and shredded. Meanwhile, a sauce is made with sweet chilli, tomato, and diced onion, fried in a pan. Finally, the k'óol is served in a deep plate along with the shredded turkey or chicken, accompanied by the fried ingredients, pickled onions, tomato sauce, habanero sauce, and handmade corn tortillas. You can find this delicacy with traditional cooks in the state, markets, restaurants, as well as during guild gatherings, celebrations for the deceased, and some other traditional festivals in the region.
