There are many more regional agricultural ingredients that you find in the country of origin that I am not listing here.
I would recommend that: First, try to eat at a restaurant that offers some of the flavors of the region. Latin America, Mexico, Spain, Caribbean. Second, cook them using shortcuts, like pre- packaged products you can find in the international aisle of your grocery store or online; such as:
Mexican Style Rice
Try to cook/Bake foods that can be mixed, rolled, shaped. These hands-on dishes are the most successful for involving children and friends: Corn Tortillas, Flour tortillas, Empanadas, Quesadillas with cheese, Tamales, Chocolate.
But, the most important thing is that by adding a little bit of this and a little bit of that, they will be creating a memory that will last a lifetime!
