The World Cup is played once every four years, which means the tournament is more than just a special occasion. Many families gather and celebrate their heritage while watching the games together, and their favorite meals become steadfast traditions. Today, we bring you two recipes from family chefs whose traditions come in different flavors.
Denise Oviedo from Addicted 2 Recipes didn’t follow soccer until she became an aunt. Her nephews brought the whole family together when they started playing the game as children, and these gatherings continued as they started watching professionals play on TV. Their meal of choice became Steak Fajita Flatbread with Queso Fresco because it’s an easy appetizer that can be quickly cooked and passed around the living room for everyone to enjoy in front of the TV.

Yolanda Machado from Sassy Mama in LA has a very different traditional flavor in her household. Her family has a Peruvian sweet tooth for everything from Camote Frito (Fried Sweet Potato Chips) to Pan y Chocolate (Bread and Chocolate). For this year’s soccer tournament, she decided to bring her love for the USA into her cooking with Berry Queso Fresco Crepes. This red, white, and blue recipe is surprisingly easy to make and may end up as a crowd-pleasing tradition in your own family. You can get the full recipe by clicking here.
