Honduras: Street Food Bite and Booze of the World Cup





It's time to put on some elastic waistband pants and sit down to another segment of the street food guide to the FIFA World Cup 2014! Honduras is home to lots of cheap street eats and bottled beers. Today we're going to take a look at baleadas, an extremely popular street snack and Salva Vida, a popular Honduran brew.

Baleadas have no definite origin. It's rumored that they were invented by an old lady no one knows who used to sell them in a poor neighborhood, but today they're a street food favorite all over Honduras. Baleada recipes are most often composed of a flour tortilla filled with refried kidney beans, scrambled eggs, a hard crumbled cheese, sour cream, and sliced avocado. The saltiness of the cheese and sour cream combines well with the texture of the beans and scrambled eggs. It's a great late night food or on-the-go breakfast recipe.

Salva Vida is a pretty straightforward American adjunct lager. There's definitely nothing fancy or complex about the smell or taste of this brew, but in a country where most live in poverty sometimes all you need is a cold beer after a hard day's work.
