Culinary Journey around the World: Central Mexico
Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit central Mexico with my sister and daughter. While we were there we enjoyed a Chicken Tostada as part of our meal at a restaurant in Puebla, Mexico …
I loved them so much that I just had to reproduce them at home and share them with all of you!
In Puebla we went to the market… a found these awesome handmade masquerade masks!
Enjoyed listening to a father and son practice singing and playing outside a coffee shop…
I was taught how to make corn tortillas by hand in our hostess kitchen- she makes them and sells them everyday! (she was very patient with me)…
We had lots of fun adventures with all our host families- I loved being immersed in the culture and welcomed into everyone’s hearts and homes…
They all thought we were really tall~ just incase you were wondering; it was quite often commented on 🙂
We had an amazing visit and fell in love with the people and ways of Mexico!
Now make yourself a Chicken Tostada with Chili Crema and join the fiesta!! Arrrriba 🙂
