Puerto Rico offers a lot more than just athletes, music, and shows. Its recipes are truly amazing, as well. One of Puerto Rico's most well-known recipes is, without a doubt, mofongo. In this recipe, we prepare mofongo with a chicken stuffing and top it off with a delicious creole sauce. The taste of the Caribbean in a single dish. Have you ever tried this gem?

Ingredients

  • 1 green plantain
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 cup fried pork rinds
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt and cilantro to taste

Directions

  • 1
    Peel the plantain and cut it into thick slices.
  • 2
    Heat the oil and fry the plantain slices until golden brown and soft. Remove the slices from the heat and drain on paper towels.
  • 3
    Sauté the chicken breast and season to taste.
  • 4
    Sauté the tomato, pepper, onion, and tomato paste. (This sauce is called “sofrito” in Puerto Rico.)
  • 5
    Add the sofrito to the cut chicken and pour the broth over it.
  • 6
    Put some butter into a mortar, and add some of the fried plantains. Mix with the pork rinds and garlic.
  • 7
    Crush everything together well until a paste forms.
  • 8
    Serve the mofongo on a plate and place the sofrito mixture in the middle.
  • 9
    Garnish with cilantro.

  • To save time, you can use ready-made fried pork rinds sold in bags. They add the necessary crunch to this recipe.
