4. Chicken Quesadillas
We’ve all had plenty of chicken quesadillas in our day, but what makes this staple of the Latin food recipes great is that it is easy to make, requires very few ingredients and offers delicious Mexican flavors in a mess-free format. Naturally, you’ll have to serve some guacamole on the side.

5. Shredded Meat
Shredded meat, whether chicken or pork is a very traditional part of many Latin cuisines. Mix it with rice and fried plantains and you have a meal the rest of the kids will be jealous of. Let’s be real, pork is way more interesting than peanut butter and jelly.
