Panuchos, Salbutes and Turkey Soup in Yucatan


Print

In Kanasin, a town just outside of Merida, you can find some really incredible food that makes you weak in the knees.

La Susan Internacional serves Panuchos, Sabutes and a very few other things and everything they do, they do really well.

We'd spent a day in the bean and chile fields and on our way back to Merida, we stopped for this incredible food, all washed down with cold beers and agua fresca.

The turkey soup sounds boring but it was made in a perfect broth and there was just enough acid from the limes to make it bright. The panuchos puff up and enjoy a slathering of refried black beans. The salbutes are dripping with oily goodness.

It's the kind of simple meal where you find yourself so happy to be so hungry. And a little bummed when the whole thing is coming to an end.

I have really nasty pangs of nostalgia looking at these photos! If I were ambitious, I'd check out these instructions for making them at home. Instead, I think I'll plan another trip back.
