    So tomorrow we are attending a pot luck dinner for our upcoming trip to Guatemala. We need to bring a dish from Guatemala for about 12 people. I have NO IDEA what to cook. I went online but couldn't really find anything. Most dishes had tons of ingredients and were to complicated for me. I need something easy. Anyone have any good ideas? I thought about easy quesadillas but that was sort of cheesy, I wanted something unique but easy....if that is even possible. What do you have?

    How about this?

    Baked Bananas (Guatemala) serves 4
    Guatemala depends on selling cash crops such as bananas, coffee, cotton, cardamom and sugar to earn foreign exchange. When world prices drop, Guatemalans suffer both because of a loss of income to support services and because the land planted in cash crops has not been used to grow food for local consumption.
    4 large bananas small carton sour cream or plain or vanilla yogurt
    1 tablespoon margarine 1 cup cashews or walnuts (or both)
    2 tablespoons honey ½ cup raisins
    juice of one lemon

    Heat oven to 350EF.

    Peel bananas and cut them in half, lengthwise. Place them in a greased baking dish and dot with margarine.
    Mix the honey and lemon juice together and spread over he bananas. Put the dish in the oven and bake for 10 to 20 minutes. Serve hot with sour cream or yogurt, chopped nuts and dried fruit.
