All Puerto Rican
Coquito (Puerto Rican Coconut Eggnog)
Think of Coquito as the Puerto Rican version of eggnog! It's made with a blend of coconut ingredients, cinnamon, and rum. One batch makes plenty for a party.
Pastelón (Puerto Rican Plantain “Lasagna”)
Pastelón is a classic Puerto Rican dish made with layers of thinly-sliced plantains, ground beef, and cheese! Think of it as a Puerto Rican version of lasagna. It's the perfect casserole to make for a potluck or family gathering.
Spicy Chicken Nuggets
Spicy Chicken Nuggets! A specialty of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, these chicken nuggets are marinated in lime juice, rum, and soy sauce, dredged in flour and paprika and fried.
Air Fryer Tostones
Salty, crispy tostones get an update in the air fryer! Skip the greasy pan-fried method, and instead, toss them in a little oil and double “fry” them in your air fryer. Serve them with a simple, but tasty mayo ketchup sauce.
Chillo al Ajillo (Pan Fried Red Snapper in Garlic Sauce)
This simplified version of a classic Puerto Rican Lenten dish takes a restaurant staple and makes it easy for the home cook. Red snapper fillets are rubbed with citrus-garlic marinade, then pan-fried until the outside is crispy, and the inside is flaky and tender. A zesty garlic-vinegar sauce is the finishing touch!
Tembleque (Puerto Rican Coconut Pudding)
Allergy-Friendly, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Vegetarian
Simple desserts are sometimes best. Puerto Rican Coconut Pudding, or tembleque, is a simple dessert made from ingredients you probably have on hand – coconut milk, sugar, and cornstarch. You can dress it up with lime, orange, or cinnamon. It only takes 20 minutes of hands-on time!
