Honduran Food

Over our past four months here, Karen has had the opportunity to learn how to cook various types of traditional Honduran food. Darrell has had the opportunity to eat them.

Check out some pictures of Karen making homemade tortillas, refried beans, and fried plantains to make baleadas with our neighbors, Dixie, Reina, Zeida, and Nancy.

Platano Fritos - Karen's Favorite!

Making Tortillas

The finished product - to make a baleada, you simply take a tortilla, spread some refried beans, mantequilla, and cheese inside with your favorite toppings, in our case avacado and plantanos!

Everyone enjoying their baleadas.

Check out some pictures of Karen and her coworkers learning how to make papusas with our friend Becky Vega and her family.

First you have to chop up all the ingredients for the filling, toppings and sauce.

Then you have to grind your fillings so they become soft (kind of like ground beef)

When all the prep is done, you put your fillings inside the papusa dough, roll it into a ball, flatten the ball so it looks like a tortilla, then cook it like a pancake.

Karen got to be in charge of the grill.

The finished product - Papusas! mmmm, so delicious!
