Guatemalan Food: Tostaditas

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Guatemalan Food: Tostaditas

Here’s your Guatemalan Spanish word of the day: Tostaditas or mini tostadas

It’s been a while since I publish a Guatemalan food dish. Let’s break the Guatemalan food hiatus with post about tostaditas or mini tostadas. I am many of you have seen or even tried Guatemalan tostadas, right? However, I am not sure if you have experienced tostaditas. Well, tostaditas are part of the finger food that is usually served at events, especial if they are catering Guatemalan snacks. Tostaditas are basically mini versions of the normal size tostadas, thus you can find tostaditas de frijol [beans], de guacamol [avocado sauce], de salsa [tomato sauce] and de carne [meat], as shown here.

Interview at The Guardian: Here’s a recent interview published at The Guardian where I had the opportunity to cast some light over one of the most popular dishes of the Guatemalan gastronomy: Real street food: Pepián from Guatemala. What do you guys think?

    Congratulations on widening your audience to this degree. I’m sure that recipe went down great here, as we constantly need to wage war on bland food. Fortunately we are winning in the UK, as more and more exotics are picked up by our consumers. Thanks for the recipe by e-mail; I’ll try it with my wife and let you know!

    • Thank you Canche, as always, I am trying to cast more light on all things Guatemala.

    Vaya pues mi primer contacto con la cocina guatemalteca fue precisamente una tostada tal como estas. Pero fue aquí en Nueva York, con una familia chapina.

    • Oh Mercutio57, tan suertudo desde siempre.

        Asi es. Y donde estoy ahora pues hay muchos chapines tambien. Parece que la mitad de la población de Palencia vive aqui. Esta mañana desayuné en un nuevo restaurante Guatemalteco.
