Learn to Cook Dobladas with Guicha!

These savory Guatemalan appetizers are one of the most well-loved foods for visitors to the San Lucas Mission’s Women’s Center. “Dobladas” means folded; it’s hard to believe these mouth-watering hand-helds are simply prepared vegetables folded in “masa” flour. Fortunately, you can find all the ingredients to make this recipe in the US. Try it out for yourself!

Covid 19 Update

In the last few months, our lives have been turned upside down. So much of what we have taken for granted has been taken away and we are scrambling to find a way to navigate through a world we are struggling to understand. As of April 8, Guatemala has 80 confirmed cases of Covid-19.  Of course, as we all know, there are many more cases out there. And, although there are no confirmed cases as of April 8 in San Lucas, we expect that will change soon.
