Oreja= Ear,  Cuernitos= Little Horns,  Puerquitos= Piggies(Made with Ginger & sprinkled with anise)   Besos= Kisses  Payasos= Clowns Polvorones= Dusties   Pan dulce is typically enjoyed with a  yummy cup of Mexican Hot Chocolate(it’s darker & not as sweet so it goes with the sweet bread) or  “Cafe Con Leche”

Café con leche (Spanish: “coffee with milk”) also called cafebar, is a Spanish[citation needed] coffee beverage. Similar to the French café au lait and the Italian caffè e latte, café con leche is a coffee beverage consisting of strong or bold coffee (sometimes espresso) mixed with scalded milk in approximately a 1:1 ratio. Sugar or a pinch of salt are added according to taste.

Sweet bread is a fine culinary masterpiece, it’s artisans are called “Panaderos” (bakers) & Panaderias(bakeries) are their studios/galleries. These men come in an toil early in the morn so that our breakfast tables may be graced with such a treat that is very near & dear to our culture. For a “Chido” experience I suggest taking a little field trip to a  Mexican Panaderia & raiding the treasure trove that is the shelves there.   Pan Dulce, however has also found it’s way in to grocery stores, so keep an eye out next time you shop.  For breakfast, as a snack, dessert, or as comfort food…  For holidays, celbrations or whenever!

“Pan Dulce” is SUPER CHIDO FOOD!!
