Guatemalan Cuisine: Platillo Tí­pico

Platillo tí­pico at La Casa de las Mixtas

Platillo tí­pico (typical dish) is the name given to any meal that normally has at least two of the following: chirmol (Guatemalan tomato-based sauce), platanos fritos (fried plantains), frijoles negros (black beans blob), queso o crema (Guatemalan fresh cheese or cream) and guacamol (avocado sauce). With the elements you can turn a regular breakfast into a “typical” breakfast. The same goes for lunch and dinner.

The platillo tí­pico you see above sells por Q30 at La Casa de las Mixtas. Bon appetite!
