– Hey, what's up, I'm Brenda I'm a Tasty producer and today we're gonna be making my favorite Hispanic recipes

(funky upbeat music) Tortilla espanola is a dish that originates in Spain They will eat it in gatherings, mostly during the summer They can eat it cold and hot And the reason why I created this, it's because my dad's family have Spain heritage So realizing that this is a very popular dish, I wanna explore that other half of my culture that I haven't been really connecting with

So, when I made this, it's not only very simple but it's very delicious even though a lot of people here were not exposed to it They're familiar with this dish but the ingredients are so common that people of all kinds enjoyed it and ask me for the recipe because that's how good it was And I thought well, this is the perfect excuse to learn something new and to explore And when I made it, I realized that it has a lot of commonalities with the South American culture Not only that but this simple dish has a lot of potential to connect with people who are not even Latin American because the ingredients are so common

So, really, you have don't have to go to Spain to get a little authentic taste of this culture You can just grab a couple of tomatoes, eggs, and then play with this ingredients and you will be eating authentic Spaniard cuisine One of my favorite recipes called aborrajados because it's Columbian which is where I'm from Also because it's super easy and delicious So, this is the first video that I make which is amazing, it's great

But get this, I'm making this with Adam Bianchi which you probably know from Worth It So, there comes a part where we have to get the aborrajados and break it in half and get that beautiful cheese pull and this dude looks at me, the pressure takes over, and there I am breaking that thing as he's looking at me like you can do it! And it happened It was incredible I managed to get a smile out of Bianchi You know he never smiles while I did and I'm still in the books, on record, as the one and only person who made him smile

(bell chiming) When we published it, in the comments, a lot of people were starting claiming this recipe as theirs Meaning, Ecuadorian people were saying that's actually Ecuadorian, Peruvians, Puerto Ricans So, it was really cool to realize okay, this is what I thought was a Columbian recipe, it's actually this Latin American recipe that a lot of people are calling different names and making it in different ways so it's ours It was kind of enlightening to realize that what I thought was ours is really Latin American And it's so easy

Really all you're doing is grabbing some sweet plantains, frying it, flattening it, and then you put whatever you want inside In Columbia, we put a little bit of cheese and sometimes a little bit of guava paste It's so amazing to see those different interpretations of such a delicious, simple dish And guess what? Not only did we get the cheese pull, it was one of the most successful videos that we had on Bien Tasty so thank you Adam Alright, you and I know that bread pudding does not belong to Columbia or Latin America but it's a very popular dessert

Because what you're really doing is grabbing any extra bread that you have laying around home and adding whatever you want In this case, I noticed that there was a little twist People were adding a little bit of dulce de leche which is flat caramel And instead of just sugar and heavy cream, we were adding condensed milk which has everything It's creamy, it has the sugar, it's milky so you have everything in this one ingredient

When this was ready to go out, people tried it There was this girl at work, her name is Merrill She never had it before, not in this way at least, and she said, can I just grab a little bit? Can I grab a little bit more? It was so popular and a lot of people were texting me for recipes and begging me to please make it all over again and so I did If you wanna please a big crowd, this is your option So, green plantain gives us a couple of things

We char tostones also known as patacones in my country in Columbia So, tostones is really just green plantain that has been fried and then it's flattened and then it's fried again So, as I'm going through Instagram, I realize that there a couple of places in Columbia who are making this plantain cone and it's super cool because now you have amazing, delicious plantain with a filling on the go Inspired by all of this post and this new trend, I decided to bring it to Tasty And to my surprise, it was super successful

A lot of people from different cultures embraced this idea and soon after, articles from around the world started talking about this plantain cone, which again, not my creation but it was trending in my country And now, the whole continent knew about it It was cool to realize that by publishing this video, I was somehow highlighting this little dish in a little tiny corner of a country and at the end of the day, a lot of small business benefited because their recipe becomes popular and it's super cool because now you have amazing, delicious plantain with a filling on the go inspired by all this post and this new trend (soft electronic music) Papas rellenas is very popular in places like Peru and Columbia All it really is is mashed potato which houses whatever you want

It can be beans, ground beef, and that's really the whole concept So, I came to the United States when I was about to turn 15 and one of the things that I noticed immediately is that although people do try to bring back the dishes from different countries, there was something missing here Now that I'm working at Bien Tasty, I get to share those dishes that I miss so much when I arrived And I get to share them with a lot of people in a lot of countries So, it's crazy how things played out for me to be able to still work with my culture as part of my job

That's insane Every single dish, it's an expression of some kind Maybe it's a really fancy chef who wants to show off his amazing culinary skills or it's just a grandma in Ecuador who is really eager to share her longtime tradition of papas rellenas, whatever it is It's a message in every dish At the end of the day, you're eating a little bit of someone's story

Maybe it's just a story of how this dish arrived to existence Maybe it's a story of the influence of other cultures to yours Whatever it is, as a fan of stories, of storytelling, I try to appreciate as much as I can and a new dish, not just for its flavors and its looks, but for its origins And that's something that I'm lucky enough to do in every single video that I'm putting out there for Bien Tasty and I get to do it with a massive audience Alright, so if you haven't gotten a chance to explore non-mainstream Latin American recipes then please, I beg you to try these ones, because they are delicious, they're easy to make, they're affordable, and most importantly, you will be eating authentic, amazing Latin American dishes

Try them (upbeat electronic music)
