There is no question that Hispanics love food.  Every time there’s a special occasion you will enjoy plenty of food.  There’s always lots of leftovers even after people have eaten twice.   A typical carne asada (grilled beef) party might include chicken, shrimp, rice, beans, grilled onions, corn and/or patatoes.  Then there’s also the salsa and the tortillas.
