wood on the ground, and burn down to white coals. Remove kids from
water and thread on spits. Arrange over the hot coals, and roast for
2 to 3 hours, depending on the kids' weight, basting occasionally
with a little salted water. Turn spits continuously so that the meat
cooks evenly, or use a rotisserie. Add more white coals if necessary.

de Olla sprinkled with cheese, totopos, and Pico de Gallo sauce. The
kid may be shredded and used in fried tacos.
