As the FIFA World Cup comes to a close this weekend, we wanted to pay tribute to the host country of Brazil by cooking up a feast of traditional Brazilian fare. Whether you're looking for a comforting dish and cocktail to replace the lost hope of a Brazilian victory, or you're just looking to get a true taste of what it would be like to be at the World Cup, here are some native dishes to suit your fancy:
Feijoada is a gut-busting black bean and pork stew, like the chili of Brazil
Caipirinha is made with Brazil's native liquor, cachaca
Blue Cheese-Onion Empanadas are perfect to munch on during the game-- no utensils necessary!
Whether your team wins or loses, end the weekend on a sweet note with Coconut Tapioca Pudding
