15 Popular Chilean Dishes Worth Trying: Favorite Food In Chile

This article has links to products and services we recommend, which we may make a commission from.

Traditional Chilean food is shaped by the terrain and climate of the country. All along the Pacific Ocean coastline, fish and seafood dominate. 

As you approach the Andes mountain range and the Atacama desert, you’ll find Chilean cuisine unique to those areas.  

In addition to the diverse Chile food, the country is also the largest producer of Cabernet Sauvignon wines in South America.

During our stay in Chile, we crisscrossed the country from the sea to the desert exploring local food specialties.

To guide you on your culinary travels, we highlight a few traditional Chilean foods you’ll see everywhere in Chile.

While not exhaustive, here are 15 Chilean dishes every visitor to Chile should try.

What is Chilean Food

Chilean Pebre Dish Chile Food by Authentic Food Quest
Chile has a diverse cuisine

“What’s tyical Chilean food depends on where you are in the country.” That’s how Chile’s top chef, Rodolfo Guzman, described Chile food to us.

This long country sandwiched between the Andes and Pacific Ocean covers an impressive range of geography and climate. 

To the north is the Atacama desert, the oldest in the world, and southern Chile is marked by lakes, forests and glaciers.

As a result, each of the regions have their own unique specialities. 

In addition to geography, Chile food is influenced by the Mapuche or indigeneous population, along with influences from European cultures.

Drawing from the bounties of the land and sea, fresh vegetables, fruits, meats, seafood and Chilean wine make up Chilean food.

Here we highlight some of the most emblematic and traditional Chilean food and dishes.

AUTHENTIC FOOD QUEST TIP: Exploring the food in Chile with a local guide is a delicious way to learn about the local food culture. In addition to sampling popular Chilean foods, you’ll explore Chile’s exceptional red, white and sparkling wines. To taste the flavors of Chilean culture, choose from any of these popular food and wine tours in Chile.

Chilean Starters and Sides

1. Sopapillas – Pumpkin Fritters: A Popular Chilean Street Food

Sopapillas are simple flat breads that are fried. They are made from a mixture of pumpkins, butter and flour, flattened into circles. 

They are a traditional Chilean street food and are found all over the country. 

Sopapillas are a versatile snack that can be eaten sweet or savory.  The most typical way we saw it eaten was savory. It was usually at the end of the day topped with either pebre sauce or mustard and ketchup.

We tried the sopapillas with pebre and immediately fell in love with them. The pumpkin flour is filling and gives them a really unique taste. 

Together with the pebre, this is a perfect pair that must be experienced. This combination was one of our favorite foods in Chile and highly recommended on your visit to the country.

2. Pebre – Chilean Salsa

Chilean Pebre Chile Food by Authentic Food Quest
This dish is a must try when in Chile

In Chile, you’ll find pebre on any respectable restaurant table. It looks like salsa you would typically find at a Mexican restaurant in the U.S., but it tastes nothing like it. 

Thisis a seasoning made with tomatoes at the base and topped off with chopped onions, chili, chives, garlic, coriander, oil and vinegar. 

Pebre Panamasado Chilean Food by Authentic Food Quest
Pebre with Pan Amasado or warm bread typically served in a Chilean restaurant

This typical Chilean salsa is traditionally served in a little clay dish. It has a nice spicy bite and is normally served with warm Chilean bread. 

During our travels through the country exploring authentic Chilean cuisine, we tried several versions of Pebre.

While generally very similar, we did find the recipes and ingredients to change based on the chef and regional Chile foods.

As a part of local Chilean gastronomy, Pebre is not to be missed and should be savored over and over again.

3. Empanadas de Pino – Chilean Empanadas

Empanada Carne Chile Food by Authentic Food Quest
Typical chilean empanada: empanada de Pino a la horno

A favorite snack food in Chile, these baked pies or empanadas are available pretty much everywhere. You will not miss them. 

In Chile the most traditional empanada filling is called “pino.” The filling is a mixture of minced meat, onions, raisins, black olives and hard boiled eggs.

Having discovered empanadas in Argentina we were quite eager to experience the Chilean version. 

The empanadas in the two Latin American countries are completely different. The most obvious difference is the size. 

In Chilean cuisine, the empanada de pino is huge – almost double the size you find in Argentina. 

The second difference is the shape. In Argentina, the empanadas are half-moon shaped, while in Chile they are squared off. 

Empanadas are typically cooked “al horno”, which means baked in a wood burning oven, or deep fried.

A traditional dish we savored several empanada de pino as a street food in different cities in the country. 

We particularly enjoyed the traditional empanada de pino which we had baked or “al horno.”

Along the coast, seafood or mariscos empanadas are absolutely delicious. These are typically fried. And, finally, you’ll also find vegetarian or verdura options filled with seasonal vegetables.

While unlike empanadas in Argentina, Chilean empanadas are delightful and deserving in their own right.

4. Humitas – Mashed Corn in the Husk

Humitas Chilean food by Authentic food quest
Humitas a surprising Chilean food cooked in a corn husk

Humitas is another one of the popular corn-based Chilean dishes you’ll find during your travels. 

This traditional food is found throughout Latin America. You might know them as tamales, as they are called in Mexico.

Humitas are made with mashed corn and seasonings wrapped in fresh corn husks and steamed. 

Each country has their own version. In Ecuador, they add cheese to the filling and eat them for breakfast. In Chile, onions, basil, and paprika are added to the hot corn filling, and they are eaten as an appetizer or main dish.

A traditional Native American dish, humitas date back to the indigenous cultures of the Americas before the Spanish conquest. 

Chilean humitas are made with humero corn, which is widespread in Chile but difficult to find in other countries.  

Humitas are easily found in the markets. Get them as a mid-morning snack before they sell out!

5. Pastel de Choclo – Steamed Corn and Beef Casserole

Pastel de Choclo Chilean Food by Authentic Food Quest
Pastel de choclo is a typical Chilean corn dish

Pastel de Choclo is a corn-based Chilean dish. We saw these Chilean meals all over in Santiago and especially at the farmers markets. 

Choclo is the quechua word for “tender corn” or  the new corn of the season, and Pastel de Choclo is like a corn pie made with sweet corn

The corn pie filling is called pino, like the one used in empanadas. It has garlic, onion, ground beef, hard-boiled eggS, and olives. 

One pastel de choclo pie we tasted at a local market also had boiled chicken in it. We’re not huge fans of corn and we didn’t particularly enjoy the dish.

However, corn lovers can expect a combination of sweet and savory flavors, from the corn and meat and poultry.

This is a popular food in Chile and pastel de choclo cannot be missed in an exploration of traditional Chilean gastronomy.

6. Completo – Chilean Hot Dog

Completo Chilean food by Authentic Food Quest
The completo or Chilean hotdog – one of our favorite Chilean foods

The Completo (Spanish for “complete” or “total”) is a Chilean hotdog. After seeing it at practically every street corner, we knew we had to try it. 

It’s huge much bigger than American hot dogs. The Chilean version comes with all kinds of trimmings: mayonnaise, tomatoes, onions, pickles, sauerkraut, etc. 

While this is one of the most popular Chilean foods, an equally popular variation is the Italiano. 

This is the same Chilean hotdog but with fewer trimmings – mashed avocado, tomatoes, and mayonnaise. We were tempted by this option and especially the avocado flavors.

We tried it at a local farmers market and were blown away. While it was surprising to have a hotdog with mayonnaise, it was actually quite delicious. 

The hot dog was tasty, the warm bread was lightly toasted and the tomatoes and avocado extremely fresh. 

So good, it’s not surprising that it is such a popular common Chilean dish.

7. Churrasco and Chacarero – Chilean Steak Sandwiches

Churrasco and Chacarero Chilean dishes by Authentic Food Quest
A handy comparison of Churrasco and Chacarero Chilean sandwiches

Churrasco and Chacarero are traditional Chilean steak sandwiches. They both come with the same base ingredients. 

A thin slice of sirloin steak called churrasco cooked a la plancha (pan fried) and two slices of flat bread called pan amasado.

The Churrasco sandwich comes with either mashed avocado (con palta), tomatoes (con tomates), or completo which means with all the ingredients, tomatoes, avocado, and mayonnaise.

The Chacarero, on the other hand, comes with green beans, tomatoes, and aji verde or green pepper.

These traditional Chilean steak sandwiches are served all day long. We had the churrasco as a sandwich and as a meal a few different times on the road and at corner restaurants.

We loved eating freshly made Churrasco sandwiches with avocado (con palta)

We really enjoyed the churrasco sandwich for its freshness and its flavorful ingredients. 

The thin slice of steak is delicious and the bread is tasty and not too doughy. The avocado is fresh and works really well with the steak. 

Traditional Chilean Soups

8. Porotos Granados – Beans Stew: A Surprising Chilean Food For Summer

Porotos Granados Chilean dishes by authentic food quest
Porotos Granados is not typically served in restaurants

Porotos Granados is a traditional Summer dish made when the ingredients are fresh and in season. 

The main ingredients are Chilean beans, corn, onions, pumpkin, garlic, fresh tomatoes, and basil. 

It is a time-consuming meal to make as beans are soaked overnight. This traditional dish is not commonly available and may not be easy to find at restaurants.

We had the opportunity to have it with our Airbnb host in Talca, South of Santiago, who made it, especially for us.  

Rich and deeply flavorful, we enjoyed this thick, delicious stew. Everything was fresh and the Chilean beans quite tasty, though it’s counterintuitive to eat this hot stew on a hot summer day. 

Nevertheless, if you find yourself in Chile in the summer months, go for the bean-based traditional Chilean soup, you will not regret it.

9. Patasca – Chilean Soup From the Desert

Patasca Chilean Food by Authentic Food Quest
This Chile national dish is perfect for cold nights

This dish is native to the Atacama people. These are the indigenous people of the Atacama desert and altiplano or high plain region.

This traditional Chilean food is a hot soup or stew that is made of corn, potatoes, pork, beef and onions. The most interesting part about this meal is the type of corn used. 

This dish is made with the white capia variety or corn that is unique to this region. We had patasca at Las Delicias de Carmen restaurant which specializes in authentic Chilean cuisine.

The ingredients in the Patasca really stand out. The word patasca refers to “broken corn” which is a reference to bloated kernels of corn which swell and burst open while stewing.

Together with the corn, this delicious soup is slow cooked allowing the beef and pork to fall off their bones. 

This is one of those simple Chilean recipes that is not fussy and the perfect remedy for cold desert nights. 

You will not see this dish everywhere in Chile’s Atacama desert, so head out to Las Delicias de Carmen to try it.

Chile Seafood Dishes

10. Cazuela de Mariscos – Seafood Stew

Cazuela Mariscos Traditional Chilean Food by Authentic Food Quest
Cazuela de mariscos or Chilean seafood stew

Another traditional Chilean soup is seafood stew or cazuelas de mariscos. This is a thick, seafood soup made with shellfish and other seafood, vegetables, and coconut milk. 

Comforting and flavorful, it can be made with clams, shrimps, oysters, prawns, squid, or any local seafood and then cooked with seasonal vegetables. 

Some versions add in Chile white wine and Parmesan cheese. 

What’s delightful about this seafood stew is its simplicity and rich flavors. Simple, delicious and healthy it consists of just seafood and vegetables.

This dish is very popular in southern Chile which is full of rivers and lakes. You’ll also find it on the menus of traditional restaurants throughout the country.

Beyond Chile, seafood stew is also popular in many Latin American countries. It is said to have originated in Columbia, and in Spain before that.

11. Reineta – Chilean Fish Pomfret

Reinata Food in Chile by Authentic Food Quest
Our favorite Chilean fish, grilled reinata

Chile, the world’s longest and narrowest country, is defined by the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. 

The coastline runs from the tropics in the north to the wintery southern tip, which means there is a staggering amount of seafood. 

Reineta is the second most popular fish in Chile and one of our favorites. Also known as Pomfret or Southern Rays Bream, it is among the least expensive fish

This mild fish is firm and white and perfect for grilling, frying, broiling, or sautéing. Grilling is the most popular with a simple preparation of lemon juice and olive oil.

Other preparations you’ll commonly find include Reineta al Perejil or pan-fried filets with parsley.

Baked reineta in a tomato-based sauce or  Reineta al Horno is another popular Chilean version. As is, Cancato de Reineta or reineta filets chopped up to make a stew mixed with potatoes, onions, and tomatoes.

The Reineta fish is also used to make excellent Chilean ceviche. 

We enjoyed Reineta several times in Chile, especially along the coast of Valparaiso where the seafood is plentiful.

One bite and you too will quickly fall in love with this popular Chilean seafood.

12. Cazuela de Vacuno – Beef Stew

Cazuela Vacuno Chilean dishes by Authentic Food Quest
Cazuela vacuno or Chilean beef stew

Cazuelas are typically soups or stews in Chilean cuisine. It is home-cooked, nourishing, inexpensive, everyday comfort food. Cazuelas are part of the national Chilean culinary spirit. 

These Chilean foods are simple and come in many variations. They start with beef, pork, lamb or chicken, preferably with bone and meat.

The meats are simmered in water or broth with garlic, onion, oregano, and paprika. 

Then tender, seasonal vegetables are added. This includes potatoes, corn on the cob, pumpkins, onions and other vegetables. 

The beef cazuela is flavorful and we relished the simplicity of the stew.Just the meat, poultry or fish and fresh vegetables in rich flavors. Simple and delicious!

As one of the most traditional Chilean dishes, you’ll typically not find cazuela on the menu of elegant Chilean restaurants.

To try it, visit any local restaurant or eatery for a flavorful taste of traditional Chilean soup.

13. Lomo a Lo Pobre – Poor Man’s Steak

Lomo a la pobre Chile national dish by Authentic Food Quest
This Chilean dish comes in few variations

Many Chilean recipes carry the term a lo pobre which literally means “of the poor.” There are several theories though it is not clear where the name originated from. 

Today, the term a lo pobre indicates a dish made with fried eggs. 

The lomo a lo pobre consists of a cut of beef tenderloin with french fries, a fried egg, and onions. It is sometimes also called bife a la pobre

There are several versions of this Chilean dish. You’ll find lomito a lo pobre or made with pork meat, pollo a lo pobre, made with chicken, or churrasco a lo pobre made with a thin slice of sirloin.

Lomo a la parilla  Chilean dishes by Authentic Food Quest
Delicious Lomo a la parilla

Of all the Chilean versions, we were most drawn to the lomo or beef dish. At a parilla or Chilean barbeque restaurant, we relished the traditional flavors.

We found this traditional dish to be very similar to the Chivito, the national sandwich of Uruguay.

One thing we would say though is that in general, Chilean potatoes, even when deep-fried, are delicious and flavorful. 

The red meat, perfectly grilled and very tasty added to the experience.

All in all, lomo a lo pobre is not a bad option when you want to try popular Chilean foods. 

14. Chorrillana – One of the Most Popular Chilean Dishes

Chorillana Chilean Food by Authentic Food Quest
Don’t overlook this popular dish Chorillana – (photo credit maru14)

A massive dish and one of the most popular foods in Chile, order it on aN empty stomach.

This traditional Chilean meal consists of a large plate of sliced beef with french fries. The entire plate is covered with either scrambled or fried eggs and fried onions. 

It is a typical Chilean dish from Valparaiso, and many say “it is not to be missed.” It is not fancy or exotic and is traditionally served with beer. 

Due to its huge size, it is typically meant to be shared. It is not a “pretty dish” to look at, but more of a substantive Chile food to help absorb the alcohol.

It’s mouthwatering, greasy, and overwhelmingly loved. This is one of those typical Chilean dishes that you’ll find everywhere from small street stalls, to bars and restaurants.

Traditional Chilean Desserts

15.  Mote Con Huesillos – Chilean Peach Dessert-Like Drink

Mote con Huesillo Chile Food by Authentic Food Quest
Mote con Huesillo, an unusual Chilean drink

One of the most typical Chile drinks you will find throughout the country is Mote con Huesillo

This non-alcoholic beverage is made with dried peaches cooked in sugar, water, and cinnamon, and mixed with cooked, husked wheat berries. 

Mote con huesillo is a traditional Chilean summertime drink often sold by street food vendors, but you will also find it just about everywhere. 

It has a long history dating back to the colonial time period.

This beverage is so popular, that there’s even a saying for it, “Más chileno que el mote con huesillo,” which translates to mean “More Chilean than a mote con huesillo.” 

We found it refreshing, though a bit odd with the chewy wheat berries floating in it. The sweetened, syrupy juice from the dried peaches gave it a delicious flavor that we both enjoyed.

It’s delicious and can be considered a drink that you can eat as a dessert as well.

44 Comments on “15 Popular Chilean Dishes Worth Trying: Favorite Food In Chile”

  1. Leaving the US for Santiago, we decided that our last meal would be a hot dog, anticipating that we wouldn’t see one for a number of years. We arrived in Santiago and discovered completos. Now that is the only way I eat a ‘hot dog”. Sorry you didn’t enjoy the Pastel de Choclo. The choclo must have a crusty top to which one adds salt or sugar. Pomaire, a must visit small village outside of Santiago, combines Pastel with pottery. When we visited we left with the pottery that the pastel was served in. Of course, it must be accompanied by a Pisco Sour!

    • Thanks, Chris for the tip about visiting Pomaire. A must on our next visit. Yes, the completos..such much deliciousness filled in a bun. The avocado being the best part. With the all present pisco sour to wash everything down. Glad you enjoyed yourselves in Santiago. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. This is such a great reading for me as I’m a traveler and I want to try different foods and this article helps me a lot to know more about different popular dishes to try. Thank you for this informative blog.

  3. Wow, this is so amazing and delicious dishes ideas you are sharing with us. I really love to try different dishes. A great enjoyable reading for me, thank you for sharing this wonderful article.

  4. Very thorough article! Perhaps try wording it differently so that what was not ”enjoyed” by the two of you does not ruin or scare off those who want to explore the cuisine.


    – Love, a Chilean

  5. What gets me is that as food writers you won’t try some food dishes because of high calories, lack of courage or not crazy about the ingredients. Taking a couple of bites of a dish isn’t going to make you fat.
    That being said, you made up a nice list. I would most definitely try our desserts next time around.

    • We actually do try all the local specialties when we travel 🙂 We put our prejudices aside and try what is local and popular. That said, you are right, we are up for a dessert list the next time around. Any recommendations?

  6. This is a very cute and unique article, I like the honesty of your descriptions. The suggestions in the comments above are excellent. I know that sometimes it is difficult to try something new or rare(Different ingredients put together). If I may suggest for your next trip to go more in depth and have a more open mind on trying a bite or sip at least of something that you have not try(remember this is your chance), As Anthony Bourdain did. I understand that some dishes or drinks might be similar to of the other countries but it does not mean it smell and taste the same. I would have a more open awareness and perhaps looking at other foods from other countries with less “Cultural Glasses on”, (Be open to try and adapt yourself to that society). Many dishes were made or originated under the necessity to eat, nutritious values were secondary due their history on how they became to be, then became part of the culture. I completely understand the matter of safety and precociousness, when it comes to eat, drink anything on the streets, homes or restaurants at other countries besides the regulations of the FDA (Many countries have a similar department) of the USA. Go out, explore and enjoy. Thank you for listening to my opinion.

  7. Fun article…
    I too am not the biggest fan of the sweet corn/ savory filling in Pastel de Choclo even though I love corn. I am married to a Chileno and have enjoyed exploring Chilean recipes. I found and have made a version of Pastel de Choclo called Pastel de Papas .
    It replaces the corn topping with a mashed potato topping . Fantastic! Similar to Shepard’s Pie, but much tastier in my opinion.

  8. Hi! Just wanted to say that the dishes are made with squash not pumpkin. The squash can be butternut or acorn. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone make it with pumpkin ? not sure it would have the same consistency. So sad you didn’t like the pastel de choclo (maybe it wasn’t well made?) it’s one of my favs ? Did you try calzones rotos? Churros? Chilenitos? Clearly I have a sweet tooth, but most Chilenos do as you should have seen by the ridiculous amount (and flavour range) of ice cream and popsicles available lol. I enjoyed reading your list of foods, it made me realize I haven’t made my kids Porotos granados yet ☺️
    P.S. did you try the Ceviche de Reineta? It’s sooo good!

    • Thanks Paola for your feedback. We always love to hear from locals and their perspective. You are right, maybe the pastel de choclo could have been better. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the courage to try it again. Yes, ceviche from reineta fish was one of our absolute favorites. Most of the sweets we enjoyed were from fresh fruits. What an amazing variety in Chile. The ice cream especially lucuma ice cream was heavenly. Appreciate the note about the squash 🙂 We enjoyed porotos granados and hope your kids will like it as well. Cheers.

  9. Hi!
    great article! thanks for spending the chilean food gospel 😉
    A lo pobre comes from “(steak) au poivre”, or pepper steak.


    • Thanks so much Jose. We really enjoyed discovering Chilean food and we hope this article inspires travelers to eat more of the local food on their travels. Thanks for the note about a lo pobre. That’s good to know. Cheers.

  10. We are heading to South America next year so we are starting our planning. So thought this might be one place to start with Chilean food. Good to know that we will be able to get fresh seafood along the coast. I might be tempted with the Italiano version of a completo. I would definitely want to try a Pastel de Choclo. Sweet corn is a favourite of mine. But there will be no chili sauce on anything we eat! We hope we can order with no chili.

    • So glad you’ve already noted some dishes you want to try for your trip to Chile. Not to worry, the food is not chili at all, and starting with a complete is a great place to begin. Thanks for stopping by Linda.

    • Completely agree Marghe, I do wish there Chilean restaurants were more popular outside of Chile. The completo sandwich is as big as a large hotdog. It’s all the toppings which make it seem bigger than it is. Delicious!!! Thanks for your comments.

  11. Really interesting to see what kind of food is eaten in different parts of the world, and not just in the fancy restaurants. Those hot dogs looked impressive!

    • Thanks Elissa, it is indeed fascinating to see the different dishes including what the locals eat. We hope to create awareness and inspire people to travel through food. Delicious hot dogs especially when topped with fresh avocado 🙂 Thanks for your comments.

  12. I told you this last time, but I need to travel more.
    I love Chilean food. I live in San Francisco and there are a few Chilean places that I frequent here. I tried my hand at empanadas and loveeeedd them, but I need to either learn to make these other dishes or go to Chile! 😛

    • That’s wonderful Krysten that you are close to Chilean restaurants. Do they serve these popular foods in San Francisco? Curious, how they cater to the American market vs. what is authentically in Chile. Hope you get to Chile or South America soon.Thanks for your comments.

  13. I’ll have the Pastel de Choclo and Humitas and the Completo please! 🙂
    You guys are seriously eating some crazy delicious goodness, looking forward to see what the sweet treats entail. Happy travels!

    • Thanks for your comments. Yes, the empanadas are indeed all different and the best part is discovering the differences. Never had the Caribbean ones. Would love to try those as well. I can absolutely vouch for the Chilean ones. Delicious…you will not be disappointed:)

  14. Hi there girls, nice food article, …..you should try something sweet next time you come: mote con huesillo, go for it at El Copihue ( street stands are widely found esp. In summertime)
    I’ d like to say the right name is ( churrasco) a lo pobre , with an “o”
    Greetings from Santiago??

    • Hi Marcela, Thanks for your feedback on the post. The change has been noted:) Thank you. We tried the mote con huesillo and really liked it. We will be writing more about Chilean drinks in a later post where we will feature all the unique drinks we have tasted. Thanks for your insights and feel free to let us know what else you recommend we should try. Follow our adventure and keep in touch.
