Join us as we Eat the World!!!



Each month Evelyne of CulturEatz invites us to visit a country and explore their foods.  This month she chose Puerto Rico.


Check out all the wonderful Puerto Rican dishes prepared by fellow Eat the World members and share with #eattheworld. Click here to find out how to join and have fun exploring a country a month in the kitchen with us!


I have visited Puerto Rico a number of times.  On my first visit there they were having elections to become a US Territory. They were so very excited about it and each American I spoke to was excited to have them as part of our country.  I felt so badly for them when they suffered such tremendous tragedy and received so little assistance from our current governmental administration.  I often wonder if they are kicking themselves for the desire they had to belong to this great nation who turned their back on them in their time of need.


Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now.  Puerto Rican cuisine is a wonderful conglomeration of Spanish, African, Taino and American influences with a Caribbean feel.  Chicken and Pork are widely eaten and these skewers, called Pinchos, can be made with either.  They are grilled and sold as street fare and they are delicious.


I removed mine from the skewers and served it up as table fare paired with Caribbean Black Beans and Rice and a Kale slaw.  Delicious!!!
