Centéotl is the God of Corn

Did you know that in Mexico we eat corn ALL the time? Tortillas, tostadas, picaditas, sopes, huaraches, tamales, cakes, breads, pancakes, atoles.
Even some alcoholic drinks have corn…

This week, for Comida Corrida, we honor corn!

Come and discover some delicious recipes using corn, cooked in many different and creative ways!

Sacred and delicious!

Our indigenous people use corn as a sacred and most important ingredient for their delicious foods.

This week’s menu is dedicated to Centéotl and our most valuable ingredient.
