  • Cuban Beans and Rice

    Cuban Beans and Rice

    Start with staples from Cuban cuisine: black beans and rice. The simple side is great on its own, but when jazzed up with avocado, cumin, tomato, and a little balsamic vinegar, the staple goes from average to over-the-top. Serve on its own or mix in a little cooked chicken for a hearty lunch or light supper. Recipe:Cuban Beans and Rice
  • Cuban Sandwiches

    Cuban Sandwiches

    Traditional Cuban sandwiches are served with ham and pork, so we're keeping it simple and only adding Swiss cheese and sliced pickle. Pick up a fresh baguette for best flavor. Wrap the sandwiches in aluminum foil to prevent over-browning and cook for about fifteen minutes in the oven. Recipe:Cuban Sandwiches
  • Cuban Chicken Pizza

    Cuban Chicken Pizza

    Spice up pizza night by serving individual pies on a crispy flatbread, made from toasted flour tortillas. Top the tortillas with corn, cooked chicken, black beans, and a drizzle of lime juice for bright flavor. Cook on the grill or in the oven for a few minutes, or until the Monterey Jack cheese melts.

  • Arroz con Coco (Cuban Coconut Rice Pudding)

    Arroz con Coco (Cuban Coconut Rice Pudding)

    Serve up a warm dish flavored with vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves. Don't let the coconut milk fool you–this dish isn't your standard sweet pudding, but rather a tasty, delicately-spiced dish perfect for cool evenings or those times you crave quintessential comfort food. Recipe:Arroz con Coco
  • Cuban Pork with Pineapple

    Cuban Pork with Pineapple

    Marinate pork in a sweet-tart mixture of pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, allspice, and mustard for about 20 minutes, or overnight if you have time. The chops cook quickly, so prepare the ingredients the night before and leave the pork to marinate. When you get home the next day, dinner can be on the table in about 15 minutes.

  • Cuban Coffee Ice Cream with Dulce de Leche

    Cuban Coffee Ice Cream with Dulce de Leche

Top with dulce de leche, a sugary caramel syrup made with milk, sugar, and baking soda. Recipe:Cuban Coffee Ice Cream with Dulce de Leche
