    This is a classic Central American beverage. It is sweet and silky smooth. The recipe was posted in Saveur magazine and is based on a recipe from Maria Franco, a Salvadoran cook in Los Angeles. It is Mayan in origin, and is for many Central Americans part of a morning and midday ritual. It's believed to be as curative as chicken soup is to many other cultures.

    This seafood recipe originated in Peru but is now popular throughout South and Central America. It cooks in the acid from the lime juice without heat. Serve as an appetizer with tortilla chips.

    Recipe #456066

    Quinoa is a delicately flavored grain that was a staple in the ancient Incas' diet and is available in most natural-food stores and the natural-food section of most supermarkets. It can be bought pre-packaged or in bulk. Toasting the grain before cooking enhances the flavor and rinsing removes the bitter protective coating. Unlike wheat or rice (which are low in lysine), quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids for humans, making it an unusually complete protein source. This is my adjusted version of a recipe I found on, from December 2005. It's a healthy, low-fat vegetarian dish with a nice mix of spice, textures, and flavors. Hot it up with some red pepper flakes if you prefer!

    Recipe #370472

    The Spanish carried bananas with them to the New World in the 1500s, planting the root corms in Central America and the Caribbean islands, where they flourished. With its proximity to Cuba, the Florida Keys encountered the fruit long before the mainland did. Bananas weren't formally introduced to Americans until the 1878 Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition, where, wrapped in foil, they were sold for 10 cents each. From "The Florida Keys Cookbook" and posted for ZWT5.

    Recipe #373386

    From the back of the pinto bean can, these have great flavor and are easy to make for a quick week night dinner. While we like these burritos as written (though I add more green chilies), you can spice these up by adding 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper, 2 teaspoons hot sauce, or minced ancho chilies, depending on your preference. These burritos are also good with black beans, or a mix of both black and pinto beans.

    Recipe #367670

    In 1528, the Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro discovered Peru and was intrigued by the riches of the Inca Empire. The Spanish helped to introduce chicken, pork, and lamb to the Incas. As European disease struck the Incas and a shortage of labor arose, slaves from Africa were brought over to work on the new plantations. Africans contributed such foods as picarones (anise-sweetened, deep-fried pastries made from a pumpkin dough), to the Peruvian cuisine, as did Polynesians from the Pacific Islands, the Chinese, and the Japanese.
