15 Latin Meals So Good That Everyone Should Try Them

"My mother and her family immigrated here from Panama. I am Afro-Latina, so our culture is mixed with Latin and Caribbean. My grandmother used to make ojalda or Panamanian fried bread for breakfast when I was growing up. It was my favorite, and no one in my family makes it anymore. She passed when I was 10. I’m 31, and I can still taste the memories of breakfast at her house."
