Hmmm...I'm not sure what Ecuadorian and Mexican food have to do with Puerto Rican food...though perhaps you can find tostones (in Ecuador they are called chifles) in all of those food cultures.

I like mafongo, caldo Gallego and cocquito...but my experience with Puerto Rican foods is pretty limited.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, cumba Mexicana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, danzón, Cuban rumba, ballroom rumba

This was really good I made this drink yesterday and I did not share it with anybody. No one to share it with. I had cinco de mayo all to myself this year.

I miss my family they all live in Mexico.
I want to go home. emoticon


I make wonderful Tacos if anybody is intersted and I make them healthy I have my great grand grandmothers
recipe I have to translate them from spanish to English and take things out and put things in if you don't mind. I just need to know if anybody would like to have the recipe because I can't take them with me.

My favorites are empanadillas, alcapurrias, arroz blanco con habichuelas guisado, and tostones. I don't know how on earth you can make these low cal or low fat so I haven't had them lately. I am getting hungry thinking about them..........

Oh yes. Every week or so I make a pot of red beans and white rice (yeah, I know, white rice, but most P.R.'s I know won't eat brown rice). I don't fry my pork chops anymore and I really don't use the ham, sausage and pork for seasoning. It may not taste like it did when I was a kid, but even my mother had started tweaking the classics back when I was in high school because it's just so much fat.

The one thing I won't change? Tostones. Those have to be fried.

Are you Puerto Rican?

I made a pernil on New Years Eve for my best friend and her husband - it came out SLAMMIN'!

Yum, that sounds so good. I know holidays I pull out all the stops, but do you ever make healthier versions for everyday eating?

I love, love, love Puerto Rican food. My favorites are pernil, arroz con gandules, alcapurria and pasteles. The alcapurria and pasteles, however, I really only like my mother's - her's are unbelievable. Not always the healthiest choice, many dishes are fried but around the holidays I don't care, that's what I want to eat.

This was served at my Equadorian friend, Elizabeth's sister's baby shower prepared by her Mexican husband. No idea where it originated but, since everyone equates Pina-Colada from the sunny tropics of the caribbean, here you go!

Fresh virgin Pina-Colada!

1 Can of Coco-cream (not oriental coconut milk)found in the Spanish foods section of any supermarket.
1 small 5 1/2 ozs. can of Dole crushed pineapple
1 smallest container (8oz) heavy cream
1 56oz. can of Dole pine-apple juice.

Blend everything in a blender with enough ice-cubes. Sooo delicious! You can add rum if you like. Loaded with calories perhaps but, if you are particulare, use fat free cream. Serves 12 people at 6ozs. each.
