Guatemalan Cuisine: Hilachas


Hilachas is the name of the dish based on shredded meat with recado (tomato-based sauce), and cut up potatoes. If you compare yesterday’s lunch, you can see that only the main dish changed (and the drink, because I requested coffee). Once again, you can see the meal is based on at least three crops from the milpa: maize, tomatoes and potatoes. Here is the recipe for hilachas. Bon appetite!

Trivia question, can you tell us what region of the American continent is maize from?
