Latin American Week: What's Your Favorite Latin Dish?

Last week it was Italian food. This week, it's Latin American. This spans a huge range of cuisines, of course — from foods simply inspired by New World ingredients to authentic dishes from Mexico to Chile. What's your favorite region of Latin American food, and what's your favorite Latin dish? During September we're focusing on Quick Weeknight Meals — easy suppers for your busy autumn nights. But as we do this we wanted to take a few weeks and focus on some of our favorite cuisines. Latin American is of course a vast source of inspiration for those of us here in the United States (and abroad). There are so many ingredients (beans, peppers, squash, sweet potatoes) that were found here in the New World, and Latin American cooking offer fresh inspiration for these native foods.

What are your favorite Latin American dishes and regions? Do you mostly cook the adapted version of Mexican (Tex-Mex) found in the United States? Do you like Argentinean food, or Guatemalan, or Honduran? Tell us, and also tell us if there are favorite dishes you return to week after week.
