Pan de Muertos - Bread of the Dead star
In Spanish, the phrase pan de muertos means "bread of the dead," and is the traditional sweet-bread baked for Da de los Muertos. The food offerings were meant to sustain the spirits of loved ones on their arduous journey to their underworld. Includes an easy pan de muertos recipe.

Traditional Tortillas from Beginning to Eaten star
Tortillas begin with the cultivation of maize. Maize goes through the process of nixtamalization which alters its chemistry to make its nutrients more bioavailable. Fresh nixtamal is made into dough, cooked quickly and eaten even more quickly. The fillings for tortillas are infinite.
