Food words decoder

I have lived in Costa Rica, Guatemala and Nicaragua. While there are some different expressions which is no surprise there are also a lot of different nouns used. I am thinking it would be handy to have a "food noun decoder".

While this discussion topic is a place to start, ultimately I think uploading a file with the information would be useful. To start things off:

  * Frijoles parados -- cooked whole beans

  * platanos cocidos -- boiled plantains (vs. platanos fritos -- fried)
