These Are The Thanksgiving Thirst Pics Latinos Love To See Every Year

Thanksgiving is literally all about the food. We spend days planning out the menu and creating the most wonderful food experience of the year. For Latinos, the food game is exceptionally strong because we just know how its done.

Panes Con Pavo

Panes con pavo come after Thanksgiving as a delicious way to eat your leftovers. It definitely works. A pan con pavo is that splendid leftover turkey in a sandwich with some homemade salsa, cortido, cucumbers, tomatoes, and anything else you might want to add. You know it’s good if the juices are running down your arm like a po’ boy.

Congri

What seems like a basic dish requires the cooking prowess of an abuela. The way the beans are perfectly seasoned to balance out the rice is something you learn from experience. It’s a delicate balance to really add a layer of flavor to the beans that don’t overpower everything nor do they come up short. The mere image of this dish conjures up the memories of Thanksgivings past, especially for Cubans.

Arroz Con Leche

The smell of cinnamon filling the air is what all holidays are about. Arroz con leche is the quintessential dessert in Latino culture. The creamy goodness of the dairy and rice mixed with some sugar and cinnamon is enough to make you remember all of your fondest childhood memories. You might see this dessert everywhere during the holidays but it does make an occasional appearance throughout the year.

Tamales

There are always too many tamales created during the holidays. The running joke is that you will be eating frozen tamales until the end of summer because of how many your family makes. There is something so enticing about seeing the husk come off a warm tamal, releasing steam into the air. The cornmeal goodness is something no one will ever pass up on.

Tostones

Simple. Bite-size. Tostones are one of the most heavenly foods to come out of Latino culture. The savory plantain dish is a perfect pairing for just about any meal. Photos of the golden fried disks with salt sprinkled over them will make anyone’s mouth water. You can almost hear the crunch of these tostones when you look at the photo.

Pernil

A turkey is cool but a pernil is just… *chef’s kiss.* The crunchy skin of the pork coupled with the garlicky flavor that is infused in the meat is a coupling made from the most divine minds. The exquisite pork dish is a perfect substitute for anyone’s planned turkey on the big day.

Tres Leches Cake

Tres leches cake is another dessert that all Latinos have come to know and love. Who doesn’t enjoy a cake that is both light and fluffy while being sweet and juicy? The tres leches cake is always the most highlighted dessert and it should be. The delicate dessert is the showstopper and that is why it comes after the meal and paired with a nice coffee.

Social media is where people can show off just about anything they create. This includes art in any and all media, like pancake art. Claudia, the creator behind Nappan Pancake art, is the latest artist watching their art reach the masses.

Claudia, the artist behind Nappan Pancake art, got her start because of the pandemic.

The artist first started to play around with pancake art last spring break when the pandemic forced businesses and schools to close. Claudia wanted to get more creative with her kids’ breakfasts since they were now always at home.

“I started experimenting with making Pancake art,” Claudia recalls to mitú. “At first I only used the color of the natural dough and a little cocoa. At first, I just used the ketchup dispensers and little by little I learned.”

Claudia uses her pancake art to honor some truly iconic people.

Cepillín recently died and the loss was felt throughout the community. He made our lives joyous and fun with his music, especially his birthday song. Some of the creations are done for fans who request to see their faves turned into delicious pancake art.

The artist loves creating the edible works of art.

The journey of becoming a pancake artist has been a fun adventure for Claudia and her children. The more she has practiced, the more she has been able to do.

“Sometimes I scream with excitement and I go to all the members of my house to see it,” Claudia says about her successes. “Other times it’s just a feeling like “disappointment could be better” other times it just breaks or burns and then I just cry but it usually feels very satisfying.”

You can check out all of her creations on TikTok.

Colombian heartthrob Sebastián Yatra released a new version of hit “Chica Ideal.” Along with Puerto Rican rapper Guaynaa, they added Black Eyed Peas’ member will.i.am to the remix.

Yatra and Guaynaa first released “Chica Ideal” in October. In the music video, the guys are playing a game of basketball when they’re unexpectedly transported to a magical pool party. Yatra and Guaynaa are joined by plenty of women. It’s become a global hit with over 168 million views on YouTube as of press time.

will.i.am joins the guys for the “Chica Ideal” remix.

To refresh “Chica Ideal” for 2021, will.i.am crashes the party in the new remix. He’s on a hot streak in Latin music after teaming up with J Balvin for the hit “Ritmo (Bad Boys For Life)” and Shakira for the viral “Girl Like Me.” will.i.am adds a new Spanglish verse to the track about his ideal girlfriend. Yatra and Guaynaa’s breezy reggaeton bop has some extra pep in its step with the BEP star.

Okay, Yatra, we see you.

Yatra recently celebrated the remix in an Instagram post. He quoted the “Chica Ideal” lyrics: “Girl you got me loco, loco, loco, loco, loco.” This post with a shirtless Yatra fresh out of the swimming pool will likely have his followers going loc@. To sum things up, one of the top IG comments in Spanish reads: “Ese paquetote.”

Yatra is no stranger to thirst traps. If you follow his Instagram account, the 26-year-old singer often posts shirtless photos for his fans to see.

Last month, Yatra released the music video for his ballad “Adiós.” He’s set to open for Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias’ joint tour this fall. Yatra is also nominated for Favorite Virtual Concert at the upcoming Latin American Music Awards.
