    This is more a technique than a recipe per se. However, if you love the taste of fried sweet plantains but don't want all the fat, this is the way to go. For those less familiar with plantains, they would best be described as a cooking banana. These pair well with almost and Caribbean entree. For the best results, make sure you have a really ripe plantain one that is all yellow with a good number of brown spots. Though I have portioned this as a half plantain per serving, one could easily eat a whole one alone.

    Recipe #134349

    A salad from Costa Rica, I found this recipe while search for recipes that use some of the odd ingredients that have collected in my pantry. The result is a light crisp salad which is refreshing and not at all heavy. Hearts of palm taste a bit like artichoke hearts but have a touch more crunch like a water chestnut.

    Recipe #224816

    On a recent outing in NYC with some friends I met here on Recipezaar, we went out for Peruvian food where I fell in love with this dish. Naturally, looked for a recipe and this one appears close. Have not tried it yet but plan to soon.

    Recipe #187975

    Found these while playing on the Internet and decided to give them a try soon. For the dulce de leche, you can either make your own (many good recipes on this site) or find it in a local market that has a good selection of Latin American products.

    Recipe #241578

    Posted in response to a request. Locro is a traditional recipe from Argentina which is a cross between a hearty stew and a cassoulet. This version combines firm white fish wih well cooked potatoes. (Cooking times are estimated.)

    Recipe #244510

    Native to South America, quinoa is rich in fiber, protein and other nutrients. This is a lovely variation on the more common rice pudding and is best served warm. The final product is firm and can be sliced. Top with your favorite fruit and this dessert makes for a terrific breakfast. Since I tend to not like my desserts very sweet, I usually make this with 2/3 cup sugar or a combination of sugar and Splenda. (For Core followers, you can make this Core bu skipping the currants and nuts, and replacing the sugar with Splenda. Add the Splenda towards the end to avoid the artificially sweetened taste.)

    Recipe #137505

    I found this recipe on the Internet and still looking to verify it's authenticity. I suspect the name comes from the brilliant red and green from the tomato sauce and vegetables. For now what I can say is delicious and easy to prepare. Most of the cooking time is a passive simmer so you can easily start this dish and go attend to other things around the house. (For WW, this is Core.)

    Recipe #252740

    Posted in response to a request. This version of a traditional Argentinean stew features both chicken and pork.
