    My fave latin food has to be congris.  LOVE!  Oh and for dessert: Flan.  My MIL makes the best flan I have ever tasted.

    We're not serving any at the wedding.  I will ask my MIL to maybe make some flan if she can so we can put it at the midnight sweet table.

    we love food in general- mexican, central american, ethiopian, italian, the list goes on. 

    our venue is also a caterer of mexican food, so we went with their specialty- it was very yummy

    Ooo empanada hor'douvres sounds like an amazing idea!

    I love all sorts of food!! Latin I'd have to say my faves are Colombian, Dominican, Salvadoran and Ecuadorian!!

    Our wedding is in Ecuador so all the caterers are somewhat latin already lol. However, international styles are more popular. I've noticed though they manage a nice in between compromise :) I'm most excited about the late night snack, it's typical to serve a thick potato and cheese soup called locro... veryy yummyy!! :)

    Milko- What is a midnight sweet table? Is this at the reception or afterparty and is it customary?
    Nati- Is your late night snack the same as what Milko is referring to?

    You mean Cynthia? I don't see a milko here.. anyway I'm not too sure about the midnight sweet table but I know it's getting popular to serve a snack, something to eat, or in Cynthia's case something sweet later at night. Yes it's at the reception, but way after dinner has been served and eaten, people have been dancing and partying for a good while so crowds tend to get hungry again. That's when you bring out a snack for everybody to enjoy and keep them going through the party. I've seen girls say they'll have pizza, sandwiches.. anything that fills a bit. We're having a semi-thick soup which will do two jobs at once since it tends to get a little cold here at night. Late night snacks are a great opportunity to incorporate something traditional or cultural IMO. So think about it! ;-)

    We're not even engaged yet, but my BF (who is from Mexico) has already decided that his mom is making mole (the best I have ever had, even after living with a lady in Oaxaca...) rice, and beans for our wedding!  And his brother is serving tacos al pastor...which sounds like it will be really convenient and yummy...

    I'm new to the board (just got engaged this past Saturday!) and the food related thread seems like the perfect spot to start posting! :)

    I'm half Dominican and half Puerto Rican, so my favorite Latin foods are pretty much anything that involves platanos! Mangu, tostones, maduros, pastel...oooomg I'm hungry! Also, avocados. When I was little, mami used to have to hide the aguacates from me, because I could eat a whole one like it was an apple!

    Since I just got engaged and the wedding is a ways away (we don't want to get married till after we graduate college and graduation is a year away) we're not really planning yet, but there will DEFINITELY be Latin food at the wedding! How could there not be??? FI is Peruvian so I want to try to find a good balance between Dominican/Puerto Rican and Peruvian dishes :)

    We have a Veracruz/Cuban seafood themed menu with chicken options for the non-seafood eaters.

    Our venue has no catering restrictions, so I am working to convince my fiance that a wedding is not a wedding without tamales..he is not convinced...I mean at least as an option with the cocktail hour food..
