At a Latin Thanksgiving, the only butterball at the table is abuelo. Try one of these amazing recipes instead of your typical turkey and mac combo.

1. Pastelon [via] Ground meat topped fried sweet plantains and loads of cheese equals comfort food at its finest. Make it yourself.

2. Sweet Tamales [via] Filled with cornmeal, cinnamon, and raisins, it’s a nice break from the usual spicy tamales. Make it yourself.

3. Capirotoda (Mexican Bread Pudding) [via] Is your mouth watering yet? Make it yourself.

4.  Camarão na Moranga [via] Open up a pumpkin filled with shrimp, sauce, and various cheeses and watch your guests be amazed. Make it yourself.

5. Avocado Pie [via] Don’t let the name turn you off. It’s as sweet as key lime pie, only smoother. Make it yourself.

6. Pao de Queijo [via] After trying this Brazilian baked bread with cheese, you’ll never crave Domino’s cheesy bread again. Make it yourself.

7. Cornbread and Chorizo Stuffing [via] Make an old American staple like cornbread better by adding Chorizo. It’s the perfect combo of sweet and spicy. Make it yourself.

8. Pernil [via] Turkey doesn’t stand a chance against this roasted pork shoulder with crispy skin. Make it yourself.
