Mixtas

When I was really little I had the opportunity to travel to Guatemala with my mom and other family members. Sadly, I don’t have any memory of it. I wish to go back soon but in the mean time, I have been reading bits a pieces of Guatemalan culture. One of the best ways to explore culture is through cuisine. One of the interesting foods sold in Guatemala are mixtas. Mixtas are a street food and essentially what they are are the Guatemalan version of the American hot dog. Tasty, cheap and quick makes this great meal for busy people… lazy people too.

Ingredients:

2 corn tortillas

2 hot dogs

2 tablespoons sauerkraut (or more if you prefer)

1 avocado

Green onion, if desired

Heat up the tortillas and grill (or microwave) the hot dogs. Cut open the avocado and mash it up in a bowl. Cut the green onion. Smear some of the mashed avocado on one of the tortillas, place a hot dog in the tortilla and top with sauerkraut and green onion. Repeat to make another mixta.

Enjoy a taste of Guatemala!
