Pastel de Choclo Valparaíso
(Corn and Meat Pie from Valparaíso)
The main dish tonight is Chile's best known traditional oven dish, a sort of surprising quiche (see photo). It comes in many variations but corn is always one of the main ingredients. Our version from Valparaíso contains a mix of chicken and ground beef, but also cumin, eggs, olives and raisins.
The accompanying chilean salad is a refreshing combination of chopped onions, tomatoes and coriander.
