I'm planning on thanking him for his help by sharing in the bounty of fruits (and vegetables) of our efforts. But I'd also like to do something for him and his family and maybe become more involved with them socially. To that extent I think that I need to learn more about Salvadorans and for me that starts with what they eat. I did some searching on the wide wide world of interweb and my usual friend Wikipedia had some good solid basic information, but I was not really able to find a great deal on Salvadoran Cuisine.
To begin with, can anyone post recipes for the following;
Arroz en leche
Gallo en chicha

Re: the tamales - they vary greatly at different pupuserias I've visited. The best to me are the very creamy ones, like very creamy mashed potatoes but tasting of corn. I understand that necessitates some straining involved in the process which is not reflected in this recipe. A tamal de elote should be served with crema Salvadorena. Tamales de puerco o pollo are served with salsa rojo, at least around here.
Re: the empanadas - in El Salvador as I understand it that refers to plantain stuffed with milk cream and deep fried; a small meat pie is a pastelito (sp?).
