Mojo: a typical Canarian sauce with a base of red or green peppers, in some variations it is usually spicy, and all equally delicious for seasoning potatoes and fish.
Gofio: food made from wheat or corn flour mixed together, which usually accompanies some typical dishes of the islands. It has been widely consumed in much of Latin America.
