A list of the typical food of the Yucatan was presented by Gastronomía: Atlas Cultural de México, 1988, an extensive work by various authors published by the National Institute of Anthropology and History in Mexico City.
Here we share some of the most representative Yucatecan dishes tht made the list:
TRADITIONAL DISHES YOU CAN’T MISS
- Panucho — corn tortillas stuffed with bean paste and fried, then garnished in various ways, particularly with chicken breast and marinated onion strips
- Pollo Ticul — chicken prepared much in the same way as the above, with annatto paste, orange and banana leaves, but also bell pepper, garlic and onions
- Pescado Tikin-Xic — grouper fish prepared with annatto paste and baked in banana leaves.
- Papadzules — small “egg tacos” on a tortilla smothered in tomato sauce and sprinkled generously with toasted pumpkin seeds.
- Pipián — a kind of custard
- Atropellado de coco — coconut, sweet potato, sugar and cinnamon whipped into a paste
