    Hi there,

    Chileans use corn as a base in most of their meals, and a couple of the most popular corn dishes today are humitas, which consist of mashed corn wrapped and cooked in the husk, and pastel de choclo, a delicious pie of corn and meat.

    Also, there is a great variety among the types of seafood found in the food in Chile, mainly due to the length of the country's shoreline. Favorite dishes you may find at a typical Chile restaurant include shellfish, king crab, lobster, calamari, octopus, sea urchin, salmon, sea bass, eel, and abalone crabs.
