The Big Game is around the corner and we can’t wait to share this special time with friends, family, and, equally important, food! This time, we invite you to ditch the by-now trite nachos and wings and try something as delicious as new: Latin American recipes.

We all know it: LATIN FOOD IS MOUTHWATERING. Full of flavor, a great mix of condiments, and ideal to share, Latin dishes won’t let you down in this American sports celebration.

First things first, what should you take into consideration when serving Latin food at the Big Game gathering?

  • Make a variety of dishes to appeal to everyone’s tastes.
  • Set up a buffet station so people can help themselves.
  • Provide plenty of dipping sauces and condiments.
  • Don’t forget the drinks! Latin American branded cocktails or even beers can make the best combo!

Now… get ready for The Game Of Games with these 4 Latin recipes that will make you celebrate a touchdown and not for gaming reasons. 

Salchipapas

This Latin classic from the streets of Perú, Bolivia, and Ecuador is ideal to be served BEFORE the game. Why? You get to enjoy these papas with a twist (that being salsa rosada) with no distractions. And that’s crucial: you get to enjoy the experience before the game begins while savoring its Latin flavors. You can even take it to the next level and replace the potatoes with sweet potatoes.

Chutney With Picada

This dish is what we like to call a perfect, balanced, cultural mix since the modern chutney was born from a mix of Indian spices and chili peppers from the Americas. 

It is IDEAL to condiment and enjoy a picada (a mix of different cold cuts, cheese, and nuts). Lots of Latinxs serve and share picadas before and during games that they enjoy watching together. Various types of bread are served, too and beers tend to be the perfect companion.
