Guatemala is a Central American nation slightly smaller than the size of Pennsylvania. There are over 14.5 million people living there, and the capital city is Guatemala City. Learn more on the CIA World Factbook.
I didn't have anything in mind when looking for a recipe to make for Guatemala. When I saw Guatemalan Tacos (second on the page), however, I figured it was a match made in heaven. We do Taco Tuesdays almost every week, but these were definitely different than the heavily seasoned meat + flour tortillas we were used to. Plus there were ingredients I wasn't used to using. Perfect!
This was also the first around the world cooking after the twins were born. In fact, they were four months old by this time. Wasn't going to get anything done before that.

So that was our adventure with Guatemala. It will not be going on our Taco Tuesday rotation, but it was more than edible. I still like flour tortillas better, though.
