Instant Pot Black and White Turkey Chili (Chili a la Santiago)

  Chili isn't a Cuban dish. The closest dish would be picadillo, a ground beef dish cooked in a tomato base and served over rice. However, my father in law makes a really awesome chili using traditional Cuban flavors that we all love and my kids often beg me to make. So of course I… Continue reading Instant Pot Black and White Turkey Chili (Chili a la Santiago)

Instant Pot Cuban Black Beans and Rice (Moros y Cristianos)

Rule of thumb for Cuban food....the crazier the name, the more delicious the dish. Ropa Vieja (Old Clothes), delicious! Fufu (mashed plantains), fabulous! Rabo Encendido (Flaming Tail), heavenly! But my very favorite side dish not only has an insane name, but is probably one of the staples of Cuban cuisine. Moros y Cristianos which literally… Continue reading Instant Pot Cuban Black Beans and Rice (Moros y Cristianos)

Instant Pot Easy Magic Flan Cake (Chocoflan)

This is one of the few recipes on my blog that aren't necessarily a "family" recipe. While I did use my family's flan de leche recipe, as far as I know, this is not a family tradition. Until now that is. The idea of this amazing cake was so intriguing to me that I had… Continue reading Instant Pot Easy Magic Flan Cake (Chocoflan)

When I was thinking about what dessert I wanted to post first on my blog, I thought about cheesecake.

However, I wanted to make sure I represented Cuban… Continue reading Instant Pot Cuban Guayaba y Queso Cheesecake (Guava Topped Cheesecake)

IP Cuban Chicken and Potato Stew (Fricase de Pollo)

This recipe is one of my favorite family dishes. It's comforting, flavorful, filling, inexpensive, and the leftovers are even better. The Cuban way to eat this is served over white rice. Now, you might be put off with the idea of having 2 starches on a plate. I've had non-Cuban friends who were perplexed with… Continue reading IP Cuban Chicken and Potato Stew (Fricase de Pollo)

IP Cuban Bread Pudding (Pudin de Pan)

I love it when I find family recipes that don't take too much work in order to reinvent them into Instant Pot recipes. So when I find a recipe that already calls for a pressure cooker, it's a win win. And when that recipe also happens to be a delicious dessert, it's a win win… Continue reading IP Cuban Bread Pudding (Pudin de Pan)

Instant Pot Yucca with Mojo (Cassava with Olive Oil, Onion, and Garlic Sauce)

One trick to help you determine if a Cuban restaurant you are eating at is authentic is to look at their side dishes. If their menu doesn't include Yucca con Mojo, walk out! Yucca, also known as cassava, is the Cuban equivalent to the potato. It can be prepared in lots of different ways and… Continue reading Instant Pot Yucca with Mojo (Cassava with Olive Oil, Onion, and Garlic Sauce)

Instant Pot Easy Cuban Tamales with Pork

If I had to choose one food that is the exact opposite of fast, easy, and uses readily available ingredients, it would be Tamales. Just about every Hispanic and Latin culture has a form of tamales, but most people are most familiar with the delicious Mexican Tamales which are a corn mixture stuffed with a… Continue reading Instant Pot Easy Cuban Tamales with Pork
