Um, Um, Good!

"Taste and see that the Lord is good." Psalms 34: 8

This is one of our most favorite typical foods in Guatemala. The Spanish call them tayuyos, the K'ekchi' call them tz'u'uj, and our friend from El Salvador calls them papusas. We love 'em! They are tortillas that are stuffed with different ingredients. Our favorite are the beans and cheese. You can also get them stuffed with chicken, sausage, or ham and cheese. There are several places to eat them in our town, but we have one in particular that we visit the most. It is run by K'ekchi'.

We like to try and practice our K'ekchi' with the ladies that work there. Now when we return they like us to order in K'ekchi'. They get very tickled at us trying to talk.

We also like to eat here because it is inexpensive. The other night we ordered 6 tayuyos and two drinks for 18 quetzales (Guatemalan money). That's less than $2.50 U.S.!! I can't cook for that cheap.
