Panamanian soccer star Roman Torres is having a really good December. After sitting out most of the Major League Soccer season with an ACL injury, the Seattle Sounders defender capped off his year in style.
In the final of the MLS Cup, Torres was tasked with converting a high-pressure penalty shot that would make the Sounders MLS champions. Here’s how he did:
If you grew up in a Latino family, a few things are probably true: family parties are never over in just a “few hours,” and we take our food very seriously. Here are 13 Latino dishes that are so comforting, it feels like you just wrapped yourself up in abuelito’s old sweater that is way too big for you.
Whenever it was a rainy day or one of us was feeling sick, my dad used to whip up a delicious batch of bacalao soup. The codfish mixed with the fresh vegetables and the hint of spiced broth was perfect. Bacalao soup is the *ish. If you don’t know, now you know.
Bye bye, just going to stare at this perfect picture forever. There’s nothing better than coming home from a long day and inhaling devouringsome platanos. No matter how many times I tell myself I only want a few, I always end up eating roughly a three dozen.
Much like platanos, flautasare insanely addicting. How can anyone just eat one of these?? Five or six is more satisfactory, to be quite honest.
Be still my beating heart. These beef-filled doughy delights are heaven sent. Growing up, my abuela and dad used to bring the house down making batches of these. With a cold bottle of coke and a plate of these, nothing can go wrong.

Oh, baby can this dish feed an entire starving family and then have some leftovers ready to go the next day. Anytime I want something hearty and satisfying, I look to Cuban Picadillo.
13. Puerto Rican Rice & Beans
Growing up in a Puerto Rican household, there were two kinds of rice and beans: yellow rice and beans, and white rice with red (or pink) beans. I have to say, I was a die-hard fan of the latter. Even just typing this out makes me want to go make a batch ASAP. There’s nothing simpler, and nothing more perfect, than a good plate of rice and beans.
