Central American Cuisine
jump to the recipes
This is one of my favorite styles of food with it's festive colors and varied flavors. Most of the recipes you'll find here are of Mexican origin but we have others from Costa Rica, Guatemala, and other regions of Central America.
There are some recipes that are considered Central American but really are American creations. Since there is often a fine line between authentic and non-traditional, we've included them here as well so they are easy to find.
