The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Plural: totopos

Language: Spanish

Description: This seems to cover a variety of different dishes, though the ones I have eaten have been fried tortilla crisps in which the dough is cut and folded to look like sails and excellent for scooping up guacamole. I have also seen them described as hard, thick Oaxacan tortillas punched with holes and as a Michoacán dish of tortilla dough mixed with beans before being flattened out and deep-fried and served with guacamole of minced (US: ground) meats.

Totopos served at the hotel in Mitla in Oxaca Province in Mexico

Pronounced: toh-TOH-poh(s)
