Why not impress your friends with some sabor from your homeland? Here are 12 different Latino side dishes guaranteed to impress people at your friendsgiving table.

1. Maduros


Let that platano get all yellow and black, peel it, chop it and deep fry it. Everyone is going to thank you for this sweet, sweet treat that won’t pop buttons.

2. Elotes


Elotes. Who doesn’t love a good elote? Prepare it with some seasoning and throw it in a fancy dish. It’s as if street corn got glammed up.

3. Feijoada


This Brazilian take on black beans is something your friends will want more of. Not only are black beans already one of the greatest things on earth, adding chorizo or sausage makes this dish just yum!
