Baleada Fiesta 

Kick off a whole summer of special events!

The Baleada is the national dish of Honduras. A soft tortilla is layered with soft, black beans and cheese.  Crema or sour cream, sliced avocado, scrambled eggs, and meat are also popular additions.  Simple and fast to assemble, they're for people on the go.

At the event sample fresh baleadas provided by Chelsea's own Catrachos Restaurant. Learn how to make a tortilla  round and give it a try yourself.

 

Enjoy live performances from Grupo Caracol Afro Garfiuna and Chelsea’s own International Marching Band.
