    Maine-iac's Note:

    This is a variation of a cuban dish. The balsamic vinegar gives it an exceptional flavor!

      When a Maine-iac cooks Cuban food, what do you get? A fantast-iac dish! You are right, Balsamic vinegar works magic. I substituted leftover cooked ham and would recommend it instead of chicken. It's a keeper for sure.

      This was very good however didn't have the real Latin flavor I am used to. I think what happened is that there was waaay to more oregano than necessary. I new right away when I saw 2 tsp that it would be too much. So I only added 1 and still it was too strong and over powering. When I make my blk beans I shake my oregano 1x over my pot and THATS it! I can appreciate oregano also because not only am I South American but I am also 1/2 Greek. Still anyone who feels like myself, easy on the oregano =}

      This one is a keeper, left out the pimento (didn't have it), subbed chipotle hot sauce for red pepper & added 1/4 c. Chopped cilantro just before serving. Might add a squeeze of lime next time. Topped with shredded sharp kept saying how good it was & went for seconds. Thanks for sharing!
