Housewife Iris Suyapa Caceres Castellanos said she was sitting down for dinner with her niece when they opened a bag of tortillas – and came across the “divine apparition”.
Ms Castellanos said she “felt something coming into my body from the soles of my feet” when she saw the Son of God burned in the centre of the flat bread on Wednesday night.

Since the “miracle” her house in the La Sidra community of Danli, in eastern Honduras, has received hundreds of believers from all over the country who have come to witness the apparition.
She said she believes the appearance is a “call from God for young people to come close to Christ”.
The housewife added: “I feel excited and blessed.
“I believe it is the image of God that I can see.”
She has now placed the miracle tortilla in a glass jar alongside other religious objects on a special altar in her front room, where people come to receive a blessing.
One astounded pilgrim, Olga Marina, 71, said: “You look at the little eyes, the little mustache and his hair, and a wheel that has formed around the outline this image in the tortilla, can you imagine?
“It’s a miracle.”
Ms Castellanos, who has a snack bar in the local council building, told local media she and her niece were about to make traditional dish baleada when they opened a pack of tortillas made by Melissa, the local tortilla seller.
She said: “We were ready to have dinner when my niece opened the bag of tortillas.
“She screamed when she saw the image and gave it straight to me, because she had opened it in my house.”
Ms Castellanos compared the image to the face of Jesus which appears in the Mormon Bible – and believes it is identical.
She now wants to preserve the miracle tortilla “so I can have it for the rest of my life”.
She said: “It is a blessing for all my family, especially for my niece who was allowed to find it first.”
It is not the first time the image of Jesus has appeared in the unlikeliest places.
Earlier this year the image of Christ is believed to have appeared in a tree trunk in the town of General Las Heras in Argentina, with thousands flocking to the site to receive a blessing.
In 2015 the face of Jesus appeared in the side of a hill after the landslide in the San Francisco area of Putumayo, Colombia.
Local landowners cashed in on the “miracle” by charging visitors to view it.
And in 2010 nurse Alex Cotton, from Coventry, believed she received a sign from God after a picture of Jesus appeared on her drainpipe.
