Trinidad Stewed Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 317
Tender golden brown chicken that goes great with anything.

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 735
This is one of my nephew's favorite grilled recipes. Jerk means Jamaican barbecue. This well rounded flavor of sweet, hot, herbal and spicy chicken can be served with rice, beans or pasta. Or just make a chicken sandwich out of it! I also add garlic and a kiwi to the marinade.

Cuban Beef Stew

Rating: 4.5 stars 205
The traditional dish uses a good amount of olive oil and meat with a lot of marbling. This version is lower in fat, but is true to the spirit of the recipe. Although it does take a fair amount of time, it is not difficult to make.

Carne Guisada III

Rating: 4.5 stars 201
The Perfect Puerto Rican Meal. Everywhere you go this is the one of the main dishes that is served. It goes very well served over steamed rice.

Cubanos Frijoles

Rating: 4.5 stars 86
Originally this came from a Cuban friend, but I've since doctored it quite a bit. This dish is hearty and a meal in itself. By adding more meat, beans, and rice, you can feed a large group of people. You might want to add more spice as well.

Jamaican Fried Dumplings

Rating: 4.5 stars 69
These delicious fried dumplings are easy to make with pantry staples.

Trinidad-Style Curried Potatoes (Aloo) with Green Beans and Shrimp

Rating: 3.5 stars 10
This is my version of curried potatoes, green beans, and shrimp. It's yummy! This recipe is versatile in that if you want to make it vegetarian just leave out the shrimp! Use a Trinidadian brand of curry powder if available. Serve this over steamed basmati rice or with naan.

Real Homemade Tamales

Rating: 4.5 stars 304
An easy recipe for tender, flavorsome pork tamales from scratch.

Teriyaki Venison

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
My family gobbles this up every time I cook it, which is pretty often since we eat mainly venison over beef. Has no gamey taste and can also be used with cubed beef. Let it marinate for 4-12 hours, preferably overnight.

Ancho Chile Rubbed Venison Steaks with Lime-Cilantro Butter

Rating: 4.5 stars 16
This was originally for T-bone steaks but it works just as nicely with deer. The rub helps minimize the 'gamey' taste and the butter just makes them delicious.

Two-Ingredient Pizza Dough

Rating: 4.5 stars 303
Greek yogurt is the secret ingredient in this two-ingredient pizza crust.

Oven BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

Rating: 4 stars 597
Baked BBQ chicken drumsticks are smothered in a homemade BBQ sauce.
