Pumpkin Flan


Sancocho is the one of the most delicious Puerto Rican stews that is just perfect for wintry weather. This traditional dish includes some of our favorite ingredients such as plantains (green and ripe), yautía, chayote, potatoes, corn on the cob, yuca and meat. Usually this dish is made with beef, but it is also delicious with chicken. The recipe has a long list of ingredients but don't let that discourage you, it is easy to make and more of a 'dump' style dish. All these ingredients are added to a simmering pot along with seasonings and spices that give it that criollo flavor we love. It is slow cooked in a large caldero with the lid on and simmered until the meat and vegies are tender. This recipe freezes well. The scents of this dish, like all Puerto Rican dishes, waft from the kitchen, drift and hover over the neighborhood, and your neighbors might ask you, are you a chef? It's happened to me.

Since this soup contains meat and vegetables, it is hearty already. Serve alongside freshly baked french bread and use the bread to soak up some of this delicious juices. Sancocho recipe.
