One of the dishes that represents all the roots of Chispas is undoubtedly the Chalupas and it is the only dish of its kind that mixes 3 different flavors: Sweet, Salty and Sour.
What are Chalupas?
Chalupas are a typical dish of San Cristobal de las Casas and despite being considered a street food that is usually found only during the month of September, is one of the few that retain the flavor of the cultural roots of Chiapas.
Chalupas are prepared on a crunchy Creole corn toast, to this toast is added a touch of beans, beets and carrots that give the perfect sweetness to contrast with the pork loin spiced with cloves and aged cheese from Chiapas.
All of the above is what generates the sweet and salty flavor that is enjoyed in every bite you take, but to close with a flourish, a spoonful of tomato sauce and white chile is added.
This final touch is the one that gives the acid flavor and forms a true delight for the palate.
