How to make the Bandeja Paisa dish from Colombia
Bandeja Paisa is a typical dish from Colombia. It is not really a mix of ingredients but rather individual portions of food placed on a tray.
To make a traditional Bandeja Paisa, you need a portion of each of the following:
Red beans, white rice, fried mince, fried egg, chorizo fried, fried pork (meat or skin), sliced avocado, fried banana, arepa (flat bread made from cornmeal).
Put all of the ingredients on an oval plate or tray and serve.
In Colombian Spanish, Paisa is a shortened form of Paisano which describes the ‘countrymen’ from the Antioquia region, one of the oldest parts of Colombia in the north-west of the country.
The English translation of Bandeja is Tray.
