Tortillas with Carrots & Sweet Pepper

This recipe comes from SPI partner Habitat for Humanity Guatemala. This simple recipe was adopted by gardeners in Canaque as part of their project in that community.

“The staple of all food in Guatemala is corn. Fresh tortillas are always on the table in a Guatemalan home for each meal. With this simple but effective recipe, we incorporated carrots (can also be used with other vegetables) to add more vitamins and supplements to this food in order to improve its nutritional value.” — Lily, Habitat for Humanity Guatemala
