Guatemalan Cooking

I had a lot of fun learning how to make Guatemalan dishes over Christmas break. The first thing we made was the masa recipe that I posted about yesterday. With that masa, we made corn tortillas and pupusas (a very typical dish here made from the corn masa dough and a filling of meat, cheese or beans. It ends up almost like a corn meal based fried pie.)

If you are interested in seeing the process for making pupusas, go here: http://www.all-about-guatemala.com/pupusa-recipe.html

To see how we made corn tortillas by hand, go here: http://www.all-about-guatemala.com/how-to-make-corn-tortillas.html

These were a really awesome learning experience and one of my favorite parts of being in Guatemala.
