Tatizas (Chamorro Snack)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Lil Monkey

This is a really yummy snack. It looks like a thick tortilla but has a sweet subtle coconut flavor. I got the recipe from my Chamorro mother-in-law. They're great with a little bit of butter! I usually make them at the beginning of the week and make one each day to share with the family.

OK....it's a Sunday afternoon and I'm craving something, but don't want it to take too long. I decided to make this recipe cause it reminds me of when my mom used to make it. They were delish!! The only thing I would do different is add a little more sugar, maybe 3/4 cup and will cut back on the coconut milk to 3/4 of the can....it was a bit too watery and I had to add more flour. But other than that, once we slathered on the butter, it was YUMMY IN OUR TUMMY!!
