This is a plate full of Tlacoyos

I want to share this popular Mexican dish with you called Tlacoyos. There are many ways to make Tlacoyos. The most popular way of having them is with black beans, red or green salsa, cheese, and onions.They are made into an oval shaped figure, made with masa. Tlacoyos are usually eaten as part of breakfast. You can find Tlacoyos in most Mexican food places.
The reason I chose this dish to share with you is because, every year or so, my Abuelita (grandma) sends a box of food and cultural items from Mexico. Every time my dad tells me we got something from his mom, the first thing my mind jumps to is Tlacoyos because there are always a bunch of them waiting for me. She always sends around ten of them and the best thing is she makes them herself!
