Life can get busy. A jam-packed schedule could make it difficult to find time to prepare healthy meals at home. But we still want to eat healthy as often as possible and most of us don’t have the luxury of relying on mami or abuelita’s homecooked meals. Sure, you could just ask them for recipes, but often times because so many Latina cooks taste as they go without using measurements, it’s not always easy to reproduce their dishes and get them exactly the same. Searching for recipes online could take time too especially if you don’t even know where to start.
To make your life a tad bit easier, we thought we’d help you out by creating a roundup of some of the tastiest yet simplest Latinx recipes — all in one place! These recipes are not only super easy to make but can help get you started on making meals that remind you for the food you ate growing up. If you’re a fan of chicken, we got you. There are a ton of delicious recipes from Latin America that revolve around pollo — the options are endless!
In this roundup, we feature recipes from a variety of countries, so there is something for everyone. Let’s step into the kitchen, demystify the process of making the food our mothers, grandmothers, and past ancestors made, and have fun with it all. It’s a fun way to get in touch with our roots while eating healthier than if we ate out. We also will be saving money, since cooking at home is cheaper (and time saving if you cook in bulk and eat several meals from one day’s worth of cooking). Ok, so are you ready, m’ijas?! Here are 30 recipes you’ll need to make a variety of Latinx pollo dishes.
