Completo, Chile

Chile ranks among the top three producers of avocados in the world. Its unique natural barriers -- the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Andes Mountains to the east and the Atacama Desert to the north -- help protect vulnerable avocado trees from pests and disease. To sample a Chilean avocado staple, order a completo. It's a hot dog, twice the size of an American hot dog, topped with avocado, tomatoes, sauerkraut, mayonnaise, chili, sauce and cheese. If that's not your thing, don't despair; avocados are indispensable to the Chilean diet and there are plenty of options to include avocado in each meal.
