Tlayudas Anyone?

This will be my lunch Tuesday after I land in Oaxaca, Mexico. A giant tlayuda with all the trimmings.

One of my favorite foods.

I'll be back later in the week.

Ah so we do agree on somethings!

Looks good.

Yes, Malc, isn't the good great? Let us celebrate what Mexicans add to the culture of the United States.

I had one of these last Thursday watching Mexico beat France in the World Cup, or Copa Mundial as we say down south.

I was eating with some friends at a little place called Restaurante Don Cenobio in Mitla, Oaxaca.

It was fabulous.

That looks delish, and I'd love to learn how to make it.

What is it exactly?


Blogger Dave Miller said ... (9:56 AM) : 

A tlayuda, sometimes also spelled clayuda, is a large Oaxacan corn tortilla, toasted and covered with Oaxacan black beans and Oaxacan string cheese. Add tomatoes, avocado, and of course a peice of steak, called tasajo, or pork, called cecina, and comela!

It is fantastic and if you are ever in a place where they are served, try one, you will not go hungry, and I guarantee you'll love it!

If you plan to try this at home, make sure you seek out the authentic Oaxacan tortillas, also called tlayudas. They are very different from what you normally find in stores.

Suerte mi amigos!

Also, if you want the authentic item, come with me to Oaxaca, help build a church, work on a farm, or teach women basic health and hygiene out in the villages.

I'll make sure you get one!
