McDonald’s In Mexico Sells Huevito Con Jamon Y Se Me Hizo Agua La Boca

If you ever travel down south — way south — you’ll find that Latin America has a lot to offer. Culture, beauty, adventure… and a bunch of junk food your friends didn’t know existed. McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Dunkin’ Donuts usually feature their traditional menus with a few items featuring traditional flavors. And no matter how hard you look, you won’t find them here.

McMolletes

Where it’s available: McDonalds in México.

Molletes usually consist of a slice of bread (bolillo), beans, cheese and whatever else you feel like adding to the top. They’re great for hangovers. The McMolletes are just like your abuela’s… except made by teenagers in hairnets.

Tres Leches Cake

Where it’s available: Starbucks in Perú

Why aren’t these available in the states?! Everyone knows tres leches cake is sweeter than your ex, and it’ll never leave you.

Chicha Fruit Coolatta

Where it’s available: Dunkin’ Donuts in Perú

Besides sounding close enough to chichis to make you giggle, chicha is chock full of good stuff! It’s said to prevent colon cancer, reduce cholesterol and improves joints. Dunkin’ Donuts’ version, which is inspired by chicha morada, probably contains lots of sugar, too.

Churrasquito Patagónico

Where it’s available: Burger King in Argentina

Just look at it. If you’re mouth’s not watering right now, you’re either dead or a vegetarian. Meat lovers that they are, Argentinians decided to take the wimpy Double Whopper, and made it BIGGER.

Corn & Philly

Where it’s available: Kentucky Fried Chicken in Brazil

You may not know this, but Philadelphia cream cheese is HUGE in Latin America. In fact, most people use “queso philadelphia” to describe all cream cheese. Why somebody decided to mix it with corn and put it in a fried chicken sandwich is beyond me, but aren’t you at least a bit curious?

Mexicana Lovers Pizza

Where it’s available: Pizza Hut in Mexico

This is not for the faint of heart… or stomach. Unless you’re Mexican, which means you can totally handle a pizza covered in chorizo, pico de gallo, jalapeños, and bacon.

Chicha Donut

Where it’s available: Dunkin’ Donuts in Perú

Dunkin’ Donuts doesn’t sell a chicha drink, they’ve got a beautiful cake donut with a lavender-colored, chicha-flavored icing. Who is starting the online petition to get these in the US?

Huevos con Jamón

Where it’s available: McDonald’s in Mexico

If McMolletes aren’t your thing, McDonald’s in Mexico also offers huevos con jamón, just the way your mom makes it. Well, only if your mom includes a hash brown and an english muffin in your breakfast.

Exotic Fruit Ice Cream

Where it’s available: Baskin Robbins in Perú

Limón may not seem exotic to you, but how about mora, maracuyá, or guanábana? They’re not just fun to say, they’re also super fruits, and they’re as delicious as they are weird-looking. Bonus points if you’ve noticed that Peruvians have all the best fruits!

Chocolate Pizza

Where it’s available: Domino’s Pizza in Brazil

The name says it all. IT’S A CHOCOLATE PIZZA! Also, Brazilians are crazy attractive so being in a Brazilian Domino’s surrounded by models and chocolate sounds like a dream come true.

Lucuma Delight

Where it’s available: McDonalds in Perú

This flan-like dessert comes from a fruit that looks like an avocado and a mango had a baby! And yes, it’s also a superfood! I hear the taste is indescribable so I’ll take that as a personal challenge.

Would you eat any of these foods if they were available in the U.S.? Let us know below, and don’t forget to share!

Here Are 9 Salsas From Across Latin America That You’ll Carry In Your Bag Every Day Of The Week

Here Are 9 Salsas From Across Latin America That You’ll Carry In Your Bag Every Day Of The Week

I guarantee that since Beyonce’s hit anthem ‘Formation’ hit the airwaves, we’ve all been wanting to channel our inner Bey and carry some hot sauce in our bags. But which one would you choose?  

Whether you prefer sweet and sour, ranch, spicy, or mild, when it comes to options, the possibilities are endless!

A sauce’s beauty is that every country has its famous creation that usually accompanies their traditional dishes. Every Latin American country has its mouth-watering sauce that was created using recipes passed down from ancestors.

AJILIMOJILI

In Puerto Rico, this sauce is quite popular because of its ají dulce flavor – a mix of sweet and sour notes. The green salsa is the Caribbean’s version of hot sauce and is added to recipes, such as seafood and boiled vegetables.

VALENTINA

Few of us don’t know about the magic that is Valentina. Pour that sauce all over your papas, pizza, jicama, elotes, and so much more. And it’s great because it’s available in a variety of heat levels so everyone can enjoy. 

TIÁ LUPITA HABANERO SAUCE

This Habanero Hot Sauce is an original family recipe of the brand and combines just the right amount of heat with each fruit’s natural sweetness. It is handmade in small batches, using only habanero peppers, dates, mangos, and spices. All ingredients are sourced from local farms and are non-GMO and gluten-free certified.

The sauce can be used as a condiment with breakfast burritos, eggs, sandwiches, tacos, pulled pork, steak, chicken, fish, quesadillas, and more.

CHIMICHURRI

Chimichurri is mostly tied to Argentina, even though other countries also serve the herb-based salsa. To achieve the perfect chimichurri, mix parsley, oregano, garlic, onion, pepper, vinegar, and olive oil. Pair with meat cuts like churrasco and watch the magic happen.

CHIRMOL

In Central America, chismol or chirmol is made of tomatoes, onion, peppers and other ingredients. It’s similar to pico de gallo and is used in a variety of dishes.

RICANTE

Sauce, dressing, dip, marinade… Ricante does it all and with no sugar or salt added and with just the right amount of approachable spice. Ricante is not only Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and Keto Friendly, but tiá approved!

Ricante launched with five incredibly unique hot sauces, marrying non-traditional essences like apples, mangos, carrots, and habaneros.

SALSA ROSA

Pastas are enjoyed all across Latin America, especially in Argentina and Uruguay, which pair the dishes with salsa rosa, a tomato-based sauce mixed with heavy cream. Together, they create a pink paste that blankets a variety of pasta dishes.

TACTICAL TACOS

Wait, so not all taco bases are citrus?! Tactical Tacos knows how to do taco sauce right with their notes of orange, lime, and cilantro to start your bite out just right, followed up with a perfect hint of Jalapeno and Cayenne pepper in the background. That’s just their mild sauce, Snafu. The Fire Fight and Ghost Protocol give you a similar ride with the citrus kick but with a much bigger spice hit for those that are brave enough to try it out!

MOLE

Mole is a spicy-and-sweet sauce made from chocolate that translates. The dark brown sauce gets its heat from chiles, but also has a touch of sweetness from the cacao, almonds, and peanuts often added. The sauce is topped with sesame seeds.

A Mexican Artist Is Making Pancake Art That’s Too Beautiful To Eat

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.

♬ La Feria de Cepillin – Cepillín

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.
