Empanadas are a very popular Hispanic food enjoyed by both Latinos and people of other races and national origins. Many foods that originated south of the border are popular in both American culture and across the world. These foods can be anything from arroz con pollo, which is simply chicken and rice. What many say differentiates this dish is the spices and flavors in the rice and chicken. Often this dish is served with empanadas on the side. Latinos cannot get enough of their emapanadas, and if you ever try empanadas you will understand why! There is a distinct flavor to the empanadas that keeps people coming back for more! In addition to this, there is the enchiladas and ceviche that people cannot get enough of. If empanadas are your favorite, then you need to add ceviche to them. You will find yourself craving it more and more. Most people who try ceviche with their empanadas find themselves gaining weight all the time, because they cannot stop eating them! Perhaps what Latinos make best is their postres, which we know as being dessert! The most popular desserts is probably the flan, which is very high in fat, but very much worth it if you ask someone that has had it! Empanadas are not healthy for the most part, but flan definitely takes the cake (literally!) for lack of nutritional content. With creamy rich milk as one of the key ingredients, it is hard to justify any sort of nutritional benefit to this dessert! Therefore, if you are looking for a healthy meal, then perhaps Hispanic food is not the best choice. If you are looking for a nice treat, then get your appetite started with empanadas and let the culinary greatness begin! You will find that from there, it only gets better as you go on!
