Bacalao a la Vizcaina (Basque-Style Codfish Stew)

Slow Cooker Pernil Pork
Puerto Rican style pork roast, but done in the slow cooker. It's so tender and flavorful. Best of all, it's so easy to make!
Easy Pina Colada French Toast
With just a few ingredients and little effort, this recipe makes a great summer breakfast. I created it while on holidays in Maui while making french toast for breakfast. I noticed the drink mix sitting on the counter from the night before and inspiration struck. Top with sliced bananas and maple syrup.
Asopao de Pollo
This traditional Puerto Rican stew is rich with chicken thighs and flavorful green olives, adobo seasoning, garlic, cilantro, onions, and rice.
Sesame Seed Juice
A toasted tasty juice, this is a traditional beverage of Puerto Rico. It's so refreshing and a different idea. For an iced cool beverage, add crushed ice and serve immediately.
This is a Puerto Rican recipe. The meringues are as light as a cloud and not messy, you can make a lot of them, and they have a hint of lemon.
A very flavorful Puerto Rican soup I got from one of my co-workers. It is fast, easy, and most of all delicious! I start it the night before serving by cooking the broth, onions, potatoes, and chorizo. That way the next day after work, all I have to do is add the remaining ingredients and heat through.
Tembleque de Coco (Coconut Tembleque)
Tembleque de coco is a traditional dish served in Puerto Rico around the holiday season. It is jiggly and similar in texture to a panna cotta.
Puerto Rican Mondongo
This simple, nourishing stew of tripe and vegetables is found in innumerable variations throughout Latin America and around the Caribbean. On the islands of Aruba and Curaçao, it is known as sopi mondongo. Cooking Puerto Rican food is a bit similar to Island and Spain cuisine; it has a distinctive flavor combined with foreign influences using native seasonings and ingredients. Serve in deep bowls with white rice and avocados.
From Puerto Rico to Cuba, mofongo is an extremely savory side dish or stuffing that accompanies pork, seafood, and chicken, making any meal a heartfelt home experience. Serve with roast pork or chicken, but delicious all on its own!
