    One of the experiences I really wanted to have when I visit the Quintana Roo state of Mexico, was to learn about, cook, and eat authentic ancient Mayan food. So we rented a van, and drove over to the small jungle Mayan village of Chunhuhub, to meet up with Kíichpam K'áax (selvabonita.com/en/home/), who are aiming to preserve their Mayan culture.
    It was about a 3.5 hour drive to get to Chunhuhub from Playa Del Carmen, so by the time we arrived we were all pretty hungry. We walked through the milpa (Mesoamerican crop growing system), and finally to the kitchen within the jungle of the property.
    They were already busy cooking, preparing a few traditional Mayan foods, like a variety of tamales and cochinita pibil. They prepared everything to be cooked in the pib, the ancient Mayan traditional way of cooking - an underground hot rock oven (there are many cultures around the world who have used or still use a similar underground cooking technique).
    Tok-sel - One of the most fascinating dishes they cooked was white beans, and they took a hot rock out of the fire, stuck it into the pan with the beans, and roasted them with the rock. It was incredible to see, and the beans had an incredible ummai flavor to them. They were delicious especially when paired with freshly made corn tortillas.
    Achiote (annatto) - An interesting ingredients, used commonly in Mayan food and cooking, is achiote, a pod filled with red / orange fruit. It has a slight pepper and lemony taste, and also makes everything that uses it, bright orange.
    Cochinita pibil - One of the main ingredients in cochinita pibil is achiote. They had pre-marinated it, and it cooked underground as well. The flavor of the pork was amazing, and with tortillas, onions, and salsa, it was truly support.
    We had a number of different tamales as well, all of which were totally different from any tamales I’ve ever had. They were hearty and packed full of corn and beans, and very filling. They were a little on the dry side, but I fully enjoyed learning about them, and watching them being made. The different leaves, including the hoja santa, was great to learn about.
    Special thanks to Centro Ecoturistico Kíichpam K'áax (selvabonita.com/en/home/) for putting everything together. They have an eco lodge and offer various off the beaten path activities like this.

Obviously they’re steamed. There’s moisture in the leaves etc. However, it doesnt appear that they’re would be as much moisture as a steamer tamale pot. Therefore is the texture different? A little dryer maybe?

We dont know what kinda chemicals and cancers are in the food we buy 😣. Dont gimme that "the USDA inspects our food" they dont give a crap. The Natives believed in food to heal, nurture, build up our health. Mark is eating truly healthy nurturing to the body and soul food. This man is healthy. Just look at him. He is glowing! He is healthy!

And now anthropologists beleive that Maya were nearly as savage as Aztecs. Practicing war, slavery, and ritual cannibalism. But when it comes to cruelty and savagery Noone beats the Azteca.
