Totally lost tortilla pizzas (click for recipe) found us on an over night stop just before the Guatemalan border in Mexico one tropical eve. After a fairly hefty drive down the west cost, we stumbled into a village of sorts. Set right on the ocean with a couple of beach front eateries and zero tourists we were happily attended to by some confused and friendly locals. They were as confused as to how we got there as we were. All in all they set us up with some ice cold cerveza and a mediocre lunch. From there we found some rustic camping right close to town and hit up La Tienda for some groceries. After rummaging through the one isle, we were able to purchase some corn tortillas, two tomatoes and some hot sauce. Not exactly the all you can eat buffet at the Bellagio, thou were creative.
