Pastelon (Puerto Rican Layered Casserole)
This typical Puerto Rican dish is made up of an interesting mix of ingredients but somehow they all work together. There is a little bit of salty, sweet, and savory all in one bite.
If you cannot find the tropical herb called recao (also known as culantro), you can use cilantro instead.
You can also use a 9x9-inch baking pan.
Sofrito can be found in jars, as well as in the refrigerator or freezer section of your grocery store.
