Pastel de Choclo! This is one of my very favorite Chilean foods! So yummy!
Porotos granados! A really fresh, yummy chilean bean soup. My favorite was in the summer when we went out to the campo to help harvest a garden and then the family made us this with all their fresh veggies the next day for lunch. Yummy!
Ensalada de pepino! Cucumber salad! So simple and delicious! Just cucumbers, lemon juice, and salt!
Brazo de Reina! This is a yummy cake!!!
Mayonesa! No Chilean table was complete without this stable condiment. Throw it on your rice, your chicken, your veggies, anything really. This stuff really grew on me.
Completos! So I am not generally a hotdog person, but these things are incredible! Start with the tastiest hotdog bun known to man, add a good quality hotdog, then top it with avocado, tomatoes, and mayonnaise! I also love mine with a little sauerkraut!!!
Pan Amasado! There is just something wonderfully tasty about Chilean bread (it probably has something to do with the high fat content), I love this stuff!!!
Mote con Huesillo! Probably the most Chilean of all beverages (at least of those that LDS missionaries can drink...) I love this stuff! It is basically a dried peach in peach juice with wheat berries. So yummy! I once dressed up as Mote and my companion went as Huesillo to a costume party... fun times!
Carbonada! Very similar to cazuela, except that the meat and vegetables are broken down into more manageable sized pieces for eating. In my opinion carbonada beats cazuela any day.
Mebrillo! This fruit both looks and tastes like a cross between a lemon and an apple. I mean it, if lemons and apples were people and they got married and had a baby, that would be membrillo. The fruit I had was hard as a rock, but I also had it served up like applesauce (so yummy) or as a delicious sweet spread!
