All the mainstays of the Guatemalan diet are available at the county's only Guatemalan produce store-pork, chicken or chipilín (mint) tamales wrapped in banana leaves, the equivalent of corn Jell-O; chile rellenos stuffed with carrots, onions, potatoes and ground beef. Tikal truly excels in the soup business, though. Foremost among the broths is hilacha, a brick-red boiling stew sharp with tomato, shredded-beef strands and about three different squashes bobbing in slow circles.
