Latino Readers, What Family Dishes Are Essential In Your Home?

Whether it's abuelita's famous mole or dad's magical quesadillas, food has historically been one of the greatest ways to bring people together.

In almost every household, there's an array of ~special~ dishes that even that one picky cousin will not hesitate to show up for.

Because when you're eating said dishes, you're doing much more than just that: You're revisiting memories from childhood or celebrating your heritage or feeling your heart flutter because yes, the flautas are good but enjoying them surrounded by family is even better.

The truth is, when you're Latino, you're lucky: The food found in Latin America is just *chef's kiss* good. Every country HAS more than its share of culinary masterpieces. Like, we feel bad for anyone who hasn't tried Peruvian ceviche...

...or rejoiced in eating arepas stuffed with a bunch of cosas deliciosas:
