Oaxacan village food?

kirinraj | Apr 17, 2009 03:48 PM

I'm gonna be living with a family in Oaxaca this summer for 8 weeks and I was wondering what the everyday meal for a campesino (maybe indigenous) family in the villages in the Valle de Oaxaca or the Sierra (norte or sur) would be (between 1/2 and 4 hrs away from Oaxaca City). Are there any regional specialties beyond the usual mole (usually a festival dish) and other now mainstream oaxacan foods that i might encounter? I'm sure that it will mostly be corn tortillas (made from the wonderful criollo corn) and black beans, but is there anything really interesting that anyone has experienced in that area.
