Guatemalan Food: Tortillas con longaniza

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash;© Guatemalan Food: Tortillas con longaniza by Rudy Giron

How can a simple dish such as tortillas con longanizas can be so delicious. As I have mentioned before, Guatemalan longanizas are basically pork white sausages with onion, garlic and yerba buena [mint] in the mixture. Chirmol, the most popular Guatemalan salsa, is basically charbroiled or pouched tomates without the skin and then mashed and mixed with chopped onion and hierba buena [mint] top with salt and pepper to taste. Often, chiltepes are added to the chirmol salsa. Freshly-made tortillas are the last piece of the recipe.

The taste of the longanizas and chirmol is best when the ingredients are charbroiled, but you could prepare this dish on a stove. ¡Buen provecho!
