ISO authentic south & central american potluck recipes for teens

I teach Spanish and each year we have a fair where all the students bring in food. I am really trying to keep it authentic and have them try new things. I'm told them no burritos, and no salsa and chips.

So I'm looking for easy-enough recipes that young teens can make (with parents and friends) and bring to our event. I have some great ones: gallo pinto, guatemalan banana bread, arroz con pollo, polvorones, alfahores, and quite a bit more. I'm avoiding flan, soups, and seafood.

But I get overwhelmed with internet searches. I'm looking for non-alchoholic stuff that can sit out on a table for several hours. I live in New England. We can easily get plantains, jicama, yucca, and some chiles. But I want to avoid the dried chiles for the kids. Some stores have tomatillos.

Please let me know if you have anything and what country it comes from.
