Crema de Calabaza = Pumpkin Cream Soup

Sauteed sofrito, pumpkin and vegetable stock. Finished with a bit of cream and chopped cilantro. Accompanied by pan tostado con mantequilla (toasted bread with butter)
Even though most of the island does not get very cold, we use the holidays as an excuse to bundle up and eat something warm. Crema de Calabaza is something that we can appreciate for its consistency and warmth, not to mention it’s delicious taste!

Arroz con Corned Beef = Rice with Corned Beef

Corneed beef stewed in tomato sauce, ketchup, sauteed sofrito, olives, onions, peppers, sazon and maduros. Served with Arroz con Maiz (rice with corn).
Considered a poor mans dish, some say because of its popularity in times of war. Since its in a can and has a long shelve life. An extremely popular dish in PR all year round.

Guineitos en Escabeche = Pickled Green Banana Salad

A popular holiday dish! Can’t really say why they are so important during holidays, celebrations and special occasions…they just are. If I had to guess, I would say because bananas are so abundant on the island.

Jamon con Piña & Arroz con Maiz = Pineapple-Glazed Ham & Rice with Corn

The actual Christmas ham was first eaten by the English and the Scandinavian, but we love it and probably make it better! As for corn, it can be traced back to the Taino Indians but was not in abundance dew to hurricanes wiping the crops away, so they would focus on other crops. We eat it because it’s good!
