12. Sancocho
Another hearty dish, this root vegetable and meat stew is common all over Latin America. Every country boasts slight variations on sancocho—some use chicken, some fish, some short ribs—but wherever you go it is considered a traditional comfort food.

13. Arepas de Huevo
This Colombian take on an egg sandwich is two arepas (remember those savory corn pancakes) filled with a fried egg. A typical street food in Colombia, this dish is the perfect breakfast bite when you’re on the go, and FYI, we see no problem eating this for lunch and dinner as well.
