    l0ve2c00k's Note:

    In Puerto Rico pinchos are grilled pork or chicken kabobs. They are just to die for! They are served with a slice of bread at the very tip. If you don't have a pilón (mortar and pestle) you can mix your marinade in a food processor or blender. From about.com.

      This was excellent! If you love garlic you'll love these. I marinated them overnight grilled them and lightly basted bbq sauce on them. In Puerto Rico you can also order these with tostones between the meat.

      I made this for Fall 2007 PAC. This was something I will make again. We loved it. I cooked this on the stovetop. Very good.

      This was way too salty. Also, we found the amount of pepper to be too harsh. (All heat, no flavor.)
