Guatemalan Cuisine: Pepián

Guatemalan Cuisine: Pepián

The easiest way to get authentic traditional Guatemalan cuisine is to get a daily menu special at your local diner. For instance, this meal known as Pepián, quite possibly Guatemala’s National Dish, was part of the daily menu special which included a fresco, drink made from blended natural fruits, sugar and water (more watery than a licuado), rice and tortillas, all for Q25. This meal can be had at Comedor Tí­pico Antigüeño, right on Alameda Santa Lucí­a, right across from the Municipal Market of La Antigua Guatemala.

Could somebody share the recipe for Pepián with the rest of us? Thanks! ;-)
