There are so many great recipes that are associated with America from meatloaf, hamburger, and mac and cheese to cookies, waffles frosting and pecan pie.
Like a Latin American curry this is a wonderfully rich chicken stew that combines flavours such as cumin, garlic, ginger and coriander in a coconut milk based sauce.
American pancakes are big, thick and fluffy. This recipe gives exactly that, serve with anything you want but in the American way maple syrup seems appropriate.
Pecan pies are an American dessert that deserves to be better known! This chocolate version is deliciously gooey and chocolatey.
These chicken breasts cooked in in a classic American bbq sauce in a slow cooker, can be eaten with veggies for dinner or you can also use the meat in warm chicken rolls.

Mouth-watering, pork cooked in a slow cooker and served with barbecue sauce. An American favourite, serve on floury soft rolls with coleslaw and potato crisps.
Black beans cooked in this style are a popular side dish recipe in Mexican and Latin American cultures. The beans can be hard to find but are worth it being packed with fibre and nutrients.
Black beans and sweet potatoes are spiced with chillies, cumin and garlic, then grilled for a great vegetarian main or burger. They can also be fried. These black beans are not the Asian black beans in sauce but the Latin American-style black beans.
This Southwest American/Mexican dish takes a while to marinate and then it is slow cooked but it is well worth it. The meat is perfect in fajitas, enchiladas, tacos or any Mexican-type meat dish. This also works well with pork.
Ceviche is the perfect summer seafood entree with its citrus, coriander and chilli flavours. The acid in the lemon and lime juices 'cooks' the seafood in the fridge. Different Latin American countries have different versions of ceviche so you can use any variation of fresh seafood in your own version.
