Honduras and Ecuador played a messy game in the World Cup of football last night, in sharp contrast to the performance in the World Cup of Food, where the super-neat nacatamales, little packets bursting with Latin American flavours wrapped in banana leaves, put up such a fight against Ecuador’s pan de yuca that you wouldn’t believe.
Nacatamales – laid out step by step in a reppic – Epic Recipe in Pictures, showcases the great dance of flavours the football team enjoys on a daily basis in Honduras.
There are 21 steps and 21 pictures in the reppic recipe to guide you through the making of these fantastic banana-leaf-wrapped packets of taste.
Approximate time: 1 hour 10 minutes – 30 minutes preparation and 40 minutes cooking time in a pressure cooker (4 to 5 hours 10 minutes in a normal covered steaming pan).
You really have to make this, go out of your way to find the ingredients, banana leaves should be a staple cooking instrument! Please do leave feedback in the post!
