Book Description

Forget the French fries and choose platanos fritoS≪/i> (deep-fried plantains) to accompany that burger. Start your meal with anafreS≪/i>, a Honduran refried black bean and cheese fondue. Treat yourself to some Guatemalan eloteS≪/i>, roasted ears of corn seasoned with butter, cheese, salt, lime juice, and chili powder. These are just a few examples from the Central American cuisines making inroads across the United States.
