Chiapas and Its Rich Cuisine
Chiapas is one of the Mexican states with the greatest cultural wealth, and its gastronomy proves it, the variety of dishes that can be sampled in each of its cities makes this state a perfect destination for food lovers.
The cuisine is quite different from state to state, however, there are dishes that can be found throughout Chiapas like tamales chipilín, plantains with cream and cheese or hot chocolate.
As for the dishes and ingredients, as one advances towards the Highlands and the weather turns colder, the typical food also changes. In San Cristobal, you will find a kitchen with plenty of Spanish influence, such as stuffed bread, typical sweets and desserts with high calorific value helping to withstand the low temperatures in the region.
In the main square of Chiapa de Corzo, you can taste the freshest pozol with regios huevos chimbos. At Comitan, try the saffron tamales and the bread yolk animals.
