Belize – Cuisine

The cuisine of Belize is diverse, with influences from African, Caribbean, and Mayan foods. The type of cuisine also depends on the location in Belize, whether it is more coastal or inland. The majority of Belizian dishes are made with fresh and organic food. Breakfast is an important meal in Belize and can consist of fry jacks, Johnnycakes, tortillas filled with eggs and beans, and fresh fruit. Popular lunch and dinner dishes include tamales, rice and beans, ceviche (raw fish cured in citrus juice and seasoned with spices), and empanadas (a baked or fried turnover filled with a variety of ingredients).
