Tonight's meal comes from Guatemala. Many children in Guatemala must work to help support their families rather than attend school. CRS will use some of the money donated this Lenten season to encourage families to see the importance of an education so that their children may have a better future. CRS also provides the teachers with training to help them succeed.
This is the way it would be served in Guatemala.
It may have a fried egg on top.
Being spoiled Americans we added lettuce and tomato.
And of course, sour cream.
