Honduras: Recipes and Cuisine

The cuisine of Honduras, like that of its Central American neighbors, puts a heavy emphasis on corn, peppers, tomatoes and beans. A love for pupusas is shared with Salvadoran neighbors in the west. Nacatamales are as popular in Honduras as they are in Nicaragua to the south. Coconuts are used more widely in Honduran cuisine than in neighboring countries and numerous fish dishes reflect a long Caribbean coast. Popular dishes include sopa de caracol (conch soup), carne asada, and baleadas. A panoply of tropical fruits makes for great desserts.
