The wonderful story of the pambazos

This treat is part of the history of Mexico and, believe it or not, also of its landscape!

The story goes that the pambazo was created in Xalapa, Veracruz, in honor of Carlota, Empress of Mexico and wife of Maximiliano de Habsburgo. The cook, Josef Tüdös, was inspired by the shapes of the Citlaltepec volcano, also known as Pico de Orizaba.

However, the pambazo created by Tüdös was a soft white bread impregnated with flour and filled with chorizo, white cheese, sliced ​​lettuce and CHIPOTLE pickled.

The pambazo that we know was later created in Mexico City, whose bread is bathed in guajillo chili sauce.
