This is a very tasty recipe. I had to adapt it a little, my hubby is a white boy from PA and is not used to latin food. Serve with red beans and ripe plantains.

You go girl. This is exactly how I make my recipe being a boricua as well. The only suggestion I have is you should maybe add some chorizo, ham and some olives. I also cook it with beer.
