It's mango season in Guatemala! During the peak months April - June, mangos are readily available and sold by street vendors, fruit carts and at the local market.
Fresh street mango in Guatemala comes with some zest! You can always take it au naturel or add on the traditional toppings. While the authentic recipe calls for green mango, these toppings are also offered on ripe yellow mango as well.
Fresh Lime Juice
The most unique ingredient is the powder of the local pumpkin/squash seed. This can be made with a local squash from your area or should be stocked in your local Hispanic / Mexican market. Chile Cobanero is similar to a chipotle chile, but spicier and is named after the city of Cobán in central Guatemala. This chili is an integral part of the Maya culture and its use dates back to ancient times. Now this spice is used in the national cuisine of the country and beloved around the globe. But you can use any powdered chile for this recipe!
