Food in Belize is a mixture of Caribbean, Mayan and Mexican you can also get Burgers and Pizza.
One of the main ingredients in Belize cooking is Recado either powder or paste this gives a vibrant Red colour and an earthy taste to your food. It is made from Achiote seed and a few other spices to give a very tasty result, meat is covered in the paste and then left in a fridge overnight to soak up the flavour.If you are thinking of cooking Belize style follow my cooking blog. Tamales both Chicken and Pork are extremely popular and of course the Belize Meat Pie.
