My mother used to make something called bochinche (Bachinchay)
 
It was like a mashup of meals, but omfg I still do a little happy dance when I think about it...
 
It was spaghetti with steak and black beans with some shredded cabbage in a vinaigrette sauce with potato chips on the side
 
LOL
 
I used to go to school telling my friends about it, and they had no clue wtf I was talking about.
 
I'd come back home and she'd tell me "They won't know unless they're Costa Rican--it's something we used to make growing up back home."
 
Iono...I think she made the name up, cuz that ish means "gossip" in spanish...

I love her grits and no one can touch them, not even my brother. She makes these spicy shrimp and has to get the seasoning from new orleans..my aunt sends it to her..this party dip. I love it...Her fettucini alfredo is better than mine, but she wont make it for me...Also her crawfish etouffee is BOMB, but she always has to be different and does not make it the same all the time i swear. she does that with alot of her food. always changing it up.

LOL, you can't dislike haitian food and like guadeloupean food, though. It's very similar in taste but the guadeloupean presentation is more refined

LOL, somebody needs to slip you some, incognito. The thing about haitian food is that the presentation is sometimes not very appetizing, whereas guadeloupean food keeps that French aesthetic. Guadeloupean food is the better tasting overall, though
