Pan amasado

Every once in a while I get a craving for bread – specifically Chilean bread. I won’t go to the store and stuff my face with a regular loaf. I’m talking about warm hand made Chilean bread. Since there isn’t a Chilean bakery in Nashville, I have to make the bread myself. De vez en cuando me dan ganas de comer pan – especificamente pan Chileno. No es que vaya al supermercado y me compre un pan de molde y me llene la boca. Estoy hablando de pan calentito y hecho a mano. Como no hay una panaderia Chilena en Nashville, lo tengo que hacer yo mismo.


Back when Leslie and I were dating I tried to make one style of Chilean bread called hallulla but it turned out terrible. The bread was like little hockey pucks that we wound up using like chips to dip in guacamole. So it took me a while to get the courage to try again. This time I tried pan amasado, a heavier bread that is easier to make. Cuando Leslie y yo recien pololeabamos, intente hacer un tipo de pan llamado hallulla pero me quedo terrible. El pan parecia discos de hockey que al final terminamos usando para comer palta usando el pan como chips. Asi que me tomo un poco de tiempo juntar el corage para intentarlo de nuevo. Esta vez el pan que intente hacer fue pan amasado, un tipo de pan un poco mas pesado pero mas facil de hacer.

I looked online for a recipe and I was lucky to find a good one on this blog with plenty of pictures and good detailed instructions. This time I did it right!!!! The bread turned out so delicious that we couldn’t stop eating it even after we were completely full. Busque en internet una receta y por suerte encontre una buena receta en este blog y tenia suficientes fotos y buenos detalles e instrucciones. Esta vez lo hice bien!!! El pan quedo delicioso y no podiamos parar de comer aun despues de estar completamente satisfechos.

When we made the bread we decided to go all out for a Chilean dinner – Leslie made some pebre to eat with the bread, and we finally found some Chorizo…but I will have to stop there because that meal deserves a little story of its own. For now, if you are feeling adventurous and would like to try a little piece of Chile, give this recipe a shot….it will not disappoint! Cuando teminamos de hacer el pan, decidimos hacer una cena Chilena – pan, por fin encontramos chorizo….pero tengo que parar aqui porque esta cena se merece una historia por si sola. Por ahora, si se sienten un poco aventureros y quieren tratar una recetita de Chile, prueven los decepcionara!

  1. Thanks for sharing this! Being in Ecuador right now I’m accustomed to good bread ALL the time. When I go home, I’ll have a transition–my family is mostly gluten free, so I’ll have to make this for myself 🙂
