Yelapa Pies

Post by webmaster » Mon Apr 29, 2013 8:37 am

Pays de Yelapa

Remember the first time I tried them... what a surprise, but there is a reason why they are so good.

At the Hotel Río there was a good restaurant that was taken care of by Nacho Vega, Manuelito Azurmendis and his wife Socorro (nicknamed Chacha), it was Socorro that made some very exquisite pies and it was she who gave her recipes to the housewives in Yelapa so they could make them and sell them on the beach and that way improve their incomes. All the way to the present day these famous Chacha pies (pays de Yelapa in Spanish) are well known and sold not only on the beaches of Yelapa but also different places in the Bay.

Pie Ladies of Yelapa
Patricia Landis - Eureka Reporter

Perched on the side of the Sierra Madre Mountains, Yelapa http://www.puertovallarta.net/what_to_do/yelapa.php is a coastal village in Mexico that boasts lush jungle, beachfront cottages, romantic sunsets and delectable pies delivered daily to the beach. “So how many pieces of pie have we consumed so far?” Michael asked me.

It was a good question, one that I had avoided thinking about after six solid days of pie research.

We are in our favorite place, the small tropical coastal village of Yelapa nestled in the Bay of Banderas, a 45-minute boat ride south from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

We return here for a variety of reasons. The pace is slow; the people friendly and easygoing.

Not only looks, it's quite nice, though the photo is a bit on the yellow side :-)
