In the lush, green heart of the Mayan kingdom, the revered Chaya plant flourished. Known as the Mayan spinach, its leaves were cherished for their nourishing qualities. One day, a clever cook combined these with fresh cabbage from the market, tucked them into hand-pressed corn tortillas, and thus, the Chaya Cabbage Tacos were born - a simple yet vibrant meal, echoing the colors and spirit of the Mayan jungles.
2 cups of Chaya leaves (or spinach), chopped
1 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
4 corn tortillas
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 lime, juiced
Blanch Chaya leaves for 2 minutes, then chop finely. Sauté garlic and onion until translucent, then add Chaya, cooking until soft.
Warm corn tortillas in a dry skillet.
Fill tortillas with the Chaya mixture, top with shredded cabbage, and sprinkle with roasted pumpkin seeds. Serve with a squeeze of lime.
Healing Properties: Chaya is high in nutrients and antioxidants. Cabbage supports digestive health and reduces inflammation.
