We all love the smell of coming home from a long day to find our family cooking some of our favorite Latino meals. From homemade tortillas to tostones, our families have typically carried on cooking some of the most traditional foods from our origin countries to curb their cravings. Whether you just simply want to learn more about making foods from other countries or just want to be able to make recipes on your own, our list of our favorite Latino cooking accounts is here to save the day.

Cocina Con Adela

Salvadoran cocinera Adela is showing up on her YouTube channel to show you how to cook some of the best dishes across Latin America. Plenty of videos cover recipes from her native El Salvador, but she has plenty of recipes from other countries to meet your needs.

El Jibaro Moderno

After the earthquakes that shook up the island of Puerto Rico in 2020 and right before the pandemic hit, Miguel Sanchez began posting videos as El Jibaro Moderno showing you how to conquer some of Puerto Rico’s most beloved dishes. With easy instructions, you’re sure to become a home chef in no time.

We all love a great recipe, and Mexican blogger Yvette provides us with tons of them on her page, Muy Bueno Cooking. This author has also released two cookbooks, so there’s nothing short of everything here.
