Bringing Belize Home for the Holidays


Enjoying a successful vacation is not just about incredible adventures, or finding time to rest, it is just as much about the sights, sounds and yes, you guessed it... the tastes!  

If you aren't able to be with us at St. George's Caye this year for the holidays, we would love to send the savory and comforting tastes of Belize home to your loved ones! Try one of these delectable recipes, close your eyes, and let this authentic fare take you away to the warm sun and island vibes! 

Fry Jacks. This is a Belizean classic, and one of our guest's favorite dishes. Fry jacks can be eaten with beans, eggs, or made sweet with jam. Fry Jacks are especially delicious when stuffed, and that is our specialty breakfast dish! with a swab of jam, so knock yourself out trying it out at home with our recipe here.

Relleno. In northern Belize, the traditional Mestizo dish is reserved for Sundays or for special occasions, like Christmas. This soup is also known as 'black dinner,' though travelers should not be fooled by its daunting appearance. Made from a paste of spices and achiote, the dish often includes a chicken stuffed with ground meat and eggs and is eaten with corn tortilla or white rice.

Rice and beans.
Can't forget about the Belizean classic! It is so simple, yet so complex in taste. Cooked together with the subtlest hint of coconut, rice, and beans is usually accompanied by stew chicken, coleslaw/potato salad, and fried plantain. Here's a recipe we're sure you've been dying to get your hands on.

We hope you are able to try at least just one of these exotic dishes, and spice up your holiday season with a taste of Belize! 

Wishing you and yours, the best holiday season yet!
