Foods of the Yucatán

Being from California, I thought I knew Mexican food. I love my spicy cheesy enchiladas, crispy tacos with cheese and soft savory tamales. Foods in the Yucatán are very different than what I grew up with and it took some getting used to. However, while I still miss my Cali-Mex favorites, I’ve come to love the foods of the Yucatán. Here are my personal favorites.

Panuchos (these crispy, bean stuffed tortillas are perfect for vegetarians)
Papazules (the closest I can get to an enchilada)
Huevos con Chaya (my favorite breakfast)

Have you tried Yucatecan food? Do you have a favorite? Here’s a great article with some tasty suggestions. We’d love to hear from you at
