    How to Cook dishes from Latin America


    Latin America Latin America is home to a wide range of different cuisines, inspired by many different influences including Spanish cuisine, Portuguese cuisine, and native American cuisines.

    It should be remembered that regions a range of different climatic areas, including the agricultural and cattle-ranching regions of Argentina, the Andes mountains in Peru, Mexico, and of course the Spanish-speaking islands of the Caribbean. Each of these regions of course produces different agricultural and food products, and has its owns culinary traditions, and so, as a result, Latin American cuisine is very diverse.

    Some popular Latin American recipes and dishes include:
    • Aji de gallina - This Peruvian recipe is made by coating thin strips of chicken with a spicy yellow sauce made from yellow chilis with bread, cheese, milk and walnuts.

    • Burrito - This Mexican recipe is made from a tortilla filled with meat, such as beef, chicken or pork. In Mexican cuisine meat is used for the only filling and the tortilla is thinly rolled. The dish has of course also been widely adopted in the the United States, and in American cuisine other ingredients (such as beans, cheese, rice, salsa, sour cream, tomatoes, etc.) are often added into the filling.

    • Empadas - Pastry pies from Brazilian cuisine. Many different fillings can be used, including beef, cheeese, chicken, palmito (heart of palm) and shrimp. In many cases, pieces of olive are mixed into the filling.

    • Empanadas - Baked or fried pastries usually containing various savory fillings from Argentine cuisine. There are many different varieties and fillings, including chicken, beef, boiled-egg, cheese, ham and cheese, fish, spinach, or humita (sweetcorn with white sauce). There are also dessert varieties, which normally contain fruit fillings.

      Empanadas

    • Enchilada - This dish from Mexican cuisine is based around a corn tortilla. The tortilla is dipped in oil or lard and echilada sauce, filled, rolled, and placed in a casserole dish. Sauce is then poured into the dish, and the whole thing baked in the oven.

      Enchiladas with rice and beans

    • Feijoada - This is stew from Brazilian cuisine is sometimes considered to Brazil's national dish. It contains black turtle beans and assorted meats, the meats usually including bacon, beef, jerked beef, salted pork, sausage, and smoked pork ribs. Feijoada is traditionally served together with rice, refined collar greens, roasted cassava flour, and an orange.

    • Milanesa - This dish from Argentine cuisine is somehwat similar to Austrian cuisine's Wiener schnitzel. A thin slice of meat (usually beef, but sometimes chicken or veal), is dipped in eggs, seasoned, and then covered with breadcrumbs and fried. The dish is often served with mashed potatoes as "milanesa con papas".

    • Mofongo (also known as "fou-fou") - This dish is found in Cuban cuisine and Puerto Rican cuisine. It is made from mashed plantains which are stuffed with chicken, pork or seafood.

    • Pachamanca - This is one of the most famous dishes in Peruvian cuisine. It is made by cooking marinated meat and assorted vegetables in an earthen oven (which is known as a "huatia").
