Ecuadorian Food - A Collection of Ecuadorian Recipes

Traditional and Contemporary Ecuadorian Cuisine

Ecuador is blessed with a diversity of native ingredients, thanks to its geography.

Because of its large coastal region, seafood is abundant. There's a mountainous strip in the middle of the country, where traditional Andean crops such as potatoes (many different native varieties) and grains like quinoa and corn are cultivated. The tropical region produces many exotic fruits.

Potatoes, yuca, rice, beans, plantains, seafood, chicken, beef and pork are all staples of the Ecuadorian diet. Aji, a...MORE spicy chile pepper hot sauce, seasons everything. Ceviche is very traditional (shrimp ceviche is especially popular), as are soups and stews.
