    How to Cook dishes from Puerto Rico


    Puerto Rico Puerto Rico is a self-governing unincorporated territory of the United States of America. It is an island archipelago, consisting of the main island of Puerto Rico, as well as several smaller islands and keys, and is located in the Caribbean Sea, to the East of the Dominican Republic, and to the West of the Virgin Islands.

    The first people to reach Puerto Rico are believed to have reached the island around 2000 BCE. The details of early settlement are obscure, since the native peoples were later almost entirely wiped out during the early Spanish period.

    The Spanish period began in 1493 with the arrival of Christopher Columbus, on his second voyage - by 1508, the Spanish had appointed their first governor (Juan Ponce de León). For almost four hundred years, despite attacks by Britain, France, and the Netherlands, and several revolts, Puerto Rico remained a Spanish colony.

    In 1898, during the Spanish-American war, US forces invaded Puerto Rico, and a result of that, and the subsequent Treaty of Paris which ended the war, Puerto Rico has been a US territory ever since.

    Puerto Rican cuisine has developed an interesting cuisine, derived from many diverse sources, in part as a result of a combination of these historical influences, as well as of course exploiting local ingredients. Some dishes are derived from the original Amerindian inhabitants of the island, there are also many dishes influenced by Spanish cuisine, and of course, US cuisine has also left its mark.

    Some popular Puerto Rican dishes include:
    • Albondigón - Puerto Rican meatloaf.

    • Alcapurrias - Dough is made from green bananas and taro root, stuffed with meat or crab, and then fried.

    • Arroz con gandules - Rice with pigeon-peas, flavored with sofrito (a thick cooked sauce, inspired by Spanish cuisine), and served with smoked ham.

      Arroz con gandules

    • Arroz con pollo - Rice and chicken.

    • Carne Guisada - Beef stew.

    • Cuajitos en salsa - Pork belly in a hot sauce.

    • Jibarito - Meat, cheese, salad and mayonnaise served between slices of fried plantain (a plantain sandwich). It is often served with Spanish rice, and is very popular among Puerto Ricans living in the mainland United States.

      Jibarito

    • Morcilla - Spicy sausages.

    • Mofongo - Green plantains or yuca fried in olive oil with garlic and pork cracklings. It is served mashed with chicken soup or meat.

    • Pollo frito - The Puerto Rican version of fried chicken.

    • Taquitos - A stuffed tortilla, deep-fried. Similar to Mexican cuisine's chimichanga.
