The 2017 World Series is fully in motion, and with it comes a bevy of Latino comida vendors for fans of either team to choose from. Historically, baseball stadium food has consisted mostly of snack foods; hot dogs, nachos, the rare chicken finger, and a lot of beer. Over the years, however, stadium vendors have broadened their food offerings from the classic and traditional (can’t forget about those peanuts and Cracker Jack), to the elevated and sometimes wild (Cheetos Dusted Elote and Chicken Funnel Cake Sandwich, just to name a couple).

Latino cuisine has also become more and more a part of beisbol stadium fare over the years. Fans of the Dodgers and Astros–or even the hungry neutrals that manage to buy their way into the games–can find plenty of familiar food to choose from at both Dodger Stadium and Minute Maid Park. From shrimp cocktails to classic Tex-Mex, this year’s World Series features a menu with something for every Latino fan of both baseball and great ballpark food. Seriously, Cheetos on an elote. What else could you want?

Here are the best and wildest dishes that both Dodger Stadium and Minute Maid Park have to offer during this Fall Classic.

Cheet-O-Lote (Dodger Stadium)

This classic street food has reached another level with the addition of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos dust. The Dodger Stadium elote gets slathered in a chipotle-lime mayo, cotija cheese, and Tajin seasoning — this stadium comida is not only Instagrammable, but delicious.

Shrimp Shooter (Dodger Stadium)

Let this Dodger Stadium drunken shrimp shooter (grilled jumbo shrimp floating in a michelada mix with a shot of Don Julio tequila) upgrade your baseball snack game.

Vegan Nachos (Dodger Stadium)

For vegans Tex-Mex lovers, Dodger Stadium offers La Taqueria vegan nachos, complete with vegan nacho sauce, pico de gallo, and crema.

El Real Tex-Mex (Minute Maid Park)

Of course fans can expect to find great Tex-Mex at Houston Astros games, and El Real is there for you and your cravings. Popular menu items include beef and chicken fajitas, both cooked and carved to order.

“Al Pastor” Nachos and Fries (Dodger Stadium)

Both offerings from the popular Dodger Stadium taqueria, La Taqueria are served in a Dodgers souvenir helmet. La Taqueria tops both both nachos and fries with classic cheese sauce, pico de gallo, avocado crema, and of course, Al Pastor style pork.

Diablo Pops (Dodger Stadium)

A popsicle to dunk into your michelada, margarita, or mimosa while rooting for the Dodgers. These fun pops come in flavors like Tomato Lime, Yuzu Jalapeno, and Passion Fruit, making them a great accessory for your stadium cocktail.

Torchy’s Tacos (Minute Maid Park)

The wildly popular Austin, TX taco joint is new to Minute Maid Park, but fans will find the same familiar menu favorites, including green chili pork and fried avocado tacos, as well as their famous Green Chili Queso and Chips.

Coctel De Camaron (Dodger Stadium)

Classic shrimp cocktail in shrimp broth and lime juice changes what you thought you knew about baseball stadium food.

Churro Sundae (Dodger Stadium)

If you’re at Dodger Stadium you get churros as a sundae topping, and why shouldn’t you. The soft serve ice cream is also topped with traditional sundae offerings like whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and (Dodger blue) sprinkles.
