Desayuno – My Spanish Word of the Day 8/30/2015

Desayuno (breakfast) is my favorite meal of the day.  When On Earth Blog has just published an article about breakfast in Central America called Good Morning! Breakfast Around the 7 Countries of Central America.  Here is a photo of desayuno chapin from Guatemala.  It consists of frijoles (beans), huevos (eggs), tostones or plátanos verdes fritos (fried plantains), queso (cheese) (a local cheese called queso de oja), longaniza (Guatemalan sausage), chirmol salsa (a sauce made from smashed tomatoes), and tortillas.  To read the entire article, click here.
