When we think about Puerto Rico, we generally remember the beautiful beaches, the amazing sunsets, the piña colada and mofongo, which is often considered the most popular Puerto Rican dish. Mofongo is one of the Puerto Rican delights made with fried mashed green (not ripe) plantains, mashed garlic and small pieces of crunchy chicharrón. It is mashed to get a consistency that is neither too soft nor too hard so that it can form a half-sphere or molded into the shape of a bowl to stuff it with pork meat, seafood or chicken chicharrón. My favorite mofongo is served with carne frita or shrimp mojo.
