Bandeja paisa - a typical meal popular in Colombian cuisine. The main characteristic of this dish is the generous amount and variety of food in a traditional bandeja paisa: red beans cooked with pork, white rice, carne molida (ground meat), chicharrón (fried prok rinds), fried egg, plantain, chorizo, arepa (maize flatbread), hogao sauce made from tomatoes, onions cumin, black pudding (morcilla), avocado and lemon.
Arepa Boyacense (Arepa from Boyacá): Arepas are a very important part of Colombian cuisine, as tortillas are for Mexican cuisine. In some parts of Colombia, like in my hometown of Antioquia, we serve arepas with almost every meal. I could eat them morning, noon and night with an array of toppings.
