It is truly like going to a dinner party with local Guatemaltecas, except this dinner party moves. From Pupusas, to Corn Tamales and Rellenitos de Plátano, to Elote and Chuchitos we take a walking tour to discover some of Panajachel Lake Atitlan Guatemala’s best street food.

While Pupusas are an El Salvadorian staple they are also very popular in Guatemala. Pupusas are made of a thick handmade corn tortilla that is usually filled with cheese, beans, pork, chorizo, or a combination of ingredients. It is served with a marinated cabbage slaw with red chilies and vinegar.

Corn Tamales are made of masa, a starchy corn, which are filled with meat and is wapped with leaves and is steamed. Another favorite is Rellenitos de Plátano which is boiled plantains that are mashed and formed into balls. Refried black beans, sugar and cinnamon are inserted and the mashed plantain’s center and the ball are formed around it. They are then fried in oil until brown and are an absolute treat for your taste buds.

Elote is corn on the cob that is roasted over an open grill and served with salsa, salt, and lime. Another Guatemalan mainstay is chuchitos which are a smaller type of tamale. They are prepared with corn dough that is stuffed with a very small piece of meat and a tasty blend of tomato salsa with pumpkin seeds and other herbs mixed in. This is then wrapped in a corn husk and steamed. Chuchitos are typically served with a hard, salty cheese sprinkled on top and a side of the tomato salsa.
