Maize the Lord! Mexican woman says Jesus appeared to her on homemade corn tortilla

A woman in the southern Mexican city of Tlalixtac de Cabrera, Oaxaca state, said that the burn marks on this tortilla were an appearance of Jesus ChristA woman in southern Mexico decided to use a tortilla she had just made for spiritual, rather than physical, food after seeing the face of Jesus Christ looking back at her.
Enedina Mendoza and her family make tortillas in the small Oaxacan town of Tlalixtac de Cabrera, and the baker that
she normally doesn't even look at her creations.
However, instead of sending one tortilla off to become a blessed burrito, Mendoza took another glance and recognized the son of God.

She noticed that the pancake wasn't browning before seeing that the face of the tortilla, which was made about two weeks ago, is almost entirely free of burn marks except for the face.
The devout Christian texted a photo of the special type of tortilla, called a tlayada, to her family member Lupe and asked others whether they saw the same thing she did.
Mendoza's sister said that the appearance of Jesus on the tortilla is a sign that they should attend the festival of Santo Guillermo, or Saint William, on June 25, according to Canal Antigua.
Mendoza did not sell or break the bread now keeps it by a statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico, and other religious icons on a small altar.
She continues to make more corn tortillas and offer them around town, but has yet to see a repeat appearance of any divine figures.

She has saved for the tortilla for two weeks and has not seen any divine figures in others she cooked

The sudden culinary appearance of Jesus came nearly a month after the exorcism of the entire country of Mexico at the Catholic cathedral in the central city of San Luis Potosí.
The ceremony, presided over by a bishop and a Spanish demonologist, was designed to cast out demons that had been plaguing the country with drug violence and crime. 
The image of Jesus has previously appeared on a heavenly host of food items, including grilled cheese, Cheetos, naan bread, pierogi and potatoes.
