Guatemala cuisine revisited

I’ll be living in Guatemala with my husband and his family for a few months and want to discuss what the cuisine is about.

I started another thread, but after thinking it over, the title is deceptive and I was trying to accomplish too much.

Living and eating in Guatemala

So I’m going back to the drawing board and starting here with this thread more focused on the food. If I want to discuss something specific like a restaurant or something like that I’ll use the other thread.

I hope others will discuss what they know about Guatemalan cuisine

I am only representing a small area near Escuintla in the town of Massagua.

This wiki article talks about other areas

I have yet to eat a tamale here though I did have a tamal de chipilín that a relative brought to the US. It is a green that is used a lot I was told, but other than that tamale I have yet to see it.

As far as this article ... well, have not seen that so far

And the very Evangelist town that I live in would somehow frown on what they said about corn.
