The foods of Guatemala

Traditional Guatemalan Food Guatemala does not have a single standout national dish, but several foods feature in everyday diets. Almost all dishes include some form of black beans, white rice and corn tortillas. Breakfast often combines the aforementioned elements with scrambled eggs and fried plantains.
Three of the main Guatemalan dishes are:
• Chiles Rellenos: Chile peppers stuffed with rice, cheese, meat, and vegetables. They are served with tortilla and tomato sauce.
• Chicken Pepian: Chicken in spicy pumpkin and sesame sauce. This is the national dish of Guatemala.
• Kak’ik: A traditional Mayan turkey soup, with spices like coriander, achiote, and chile peppers.
