Salvadoran Food

Salvadorans eat a lot of different foods. Food made from corn, beans, rice, and bread is the most common. They also eat fruit that grow in our country. The dish that I am making is called Choco banana. It is a frozen banana dipped in chocolate. To make it you get a pack of bananas and cut them in half. Then you put a stick through it and keep it in the fridge for a few days. When there frozen you melt chocolate and dip the banana in. Then you have a Choco banana.
