Desayuno Chapín

I know you all have seen more elegant, more sophisticated, more abundant and richer versions of a Desayuno Chapín -Guatemalan Breakfast-.
There is not set of rules nor it is written in stone what a Desayuno Chapín should be, or should contain. In my opinion, the Desayuno Chapín should reflect Authenticness -my word-, devotion to aboriginal ingredients, and the most important; Practicality. Again, in my opinion; Desayuno Chapín is about what’s practical but still tasty, not about presentation or fanciness. And what I show you here is what a Desayuno Chapín is and has been for the largest segment of the population, especially in the countryside.
And I’ll have this Desayuno Chapín go against any at a distinguished restaurant.
Que ricos estan los frijoles -So tasty are them Frijoles- I told the female attending the shop. Es que estan hechos con cariño -It is because they are made with love/passion/affection- she tells me. That’s something you are not likely to get at a fancy restaurant.

  • Okay Elí, interesting what you are saying, but you have to breakdown the Guatemalan breakfast into its essentials: Carbs, proteins and fats and you will see how complete and nutritious this breakfast really is.

    A little light would also help to make this food out.

    for me and my Guatemalan husband, the best meals are usually found on the street, or a small comedor rather than a 4 star upscale restaurant. 🙂
