5 Things we are loving/wanting/dreaming of on this Friday

We both being of Latin Decent have a love for Latin foods.  Here are some dishes we both love and crave often.

Stylish Mama:

Typical Guatemalan Breakfast
Typical Guatemalan breakfast is what my mom made me for Sunday breakfast or even some nites for dinner.
It consists of a fried egg, tortillas (homemade) re-fried black beans, farmers cheese, fresh fruit or plantains, and coffee.  yummy!


I have had this dish in Spain on the Mediterranean coast and have also made this dish at home...such a delish combo of chicken, sausage, seafood, and rice.  My favorite is the bottom of the rice where its a little crispy from cooking in the pan.

Organized Chica:

Arroz con Gandules
Combination of rice, pigeon peas and pork, flavored with sofrito.  Typical Puerto Rican dish! This dish was served with a simple salad and avocado.  Yum!!!

Whole fried fish served with green plantains and a simple salad. I know its not a custom to eat a whole fried fish here but this is typical for the coast of Colombia.  We try to make this during the summer months and its so good.  Delicioso!

Colombian Empanadas!  We eat these for breakfast, snack, or dinner, you name it.  They are a mixture of potato with chicken or meat seasoned with Latin spices.

Are you hungry yet? We are after writing this post.

Feliz Friday!
