    Y es que al chomín a veces se le echa salsa de tomate encima, o se puede comer sobre una tostada.  Cuentan que hace muchos años le preguntaron a la reina de Petén que cuál era el platillo típico de su departamento y contestó: el chomín.
    También recuerdo cuando a un amigo le llamaron la atención  porque el chomín no se comía con tortilla, “no que con pan”.
