Thank you for having this group. My son-in-law is PR and I would love to make recipes for him and our family. Puerto Rican food is tasty and fresh and yummy. He has cooked for us, at Christmas, a traditional meal. However, he is a chef and works crazy hours so cook time at home is very rare. I am looking forward to surprising him! Love to cook, Helene

Hi ! I just joined this group! My name is Karen and I live in Texas. However, I am a gringariqueña who lived in Puerto Rico for 20 years. My 1st husband was Puerto Rican. I learned so much about the people, the culture, the history and the food which is to die for! I will be happy to share recipes.
There is one thing to be said about the cuisine of SABOR!! (Flavor!)
3 or 4 large green plantains
Adobo to taste (Goya brand is what we use)
Peel the plantains.
Grate using the largest blades in your manual grater. Leave the pieces as long as you possibly can.
Season thoroughly, to taste Fry in very hot oil, a few pieces at a time.Don't worry if they all get tangled together and look like a bird's nest. That's part of the effect. Remove them when they are golden in color and set over paper towels to soak the frying oil.
My guy is from PR and I love to cook. I have made some from recipes that i found but nothing like the real deal..So, if anyone has some good home food from PR please publish so I can give him a treat..
