A delicious dish with the most unappetizing name.
A delicious and flavorful stew in half the time!
You have probably noticed that I already have a Guava Cheesecake on my blog, which by the way, is pretty darn tasty. Guava and cream cheese is the Cuban equivalent of peanut butter and chocolate or strawberries and cream. This new cheesecake is pretty much the same basic recipe (I mean why fix it if… Continue reading Instant Pot Guava Swirled Cheesecake
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)
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)
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)
Even if you have never been to a Cuban restaurant or tried Cuban food in your entire life (which is really sad and I want to give you a virtual hug) you probably have heard of flan. Flan is a dessert found in many countries, but in Spanish cultures it's the quintessential dessert. Flan can… Continue reading IP Cheesecake Flan (Flan de Queso)
When I was thinking about what dessert I wanted to post first on my blog, I thought about cheesecake. Next to ribs, cheesecake is one of those Instant Pot favorites that every IP owner tries, and then makes again and again because it comes out amazing. However, I wanted to make sure I represented Cuban… Continue reading Instant Pot Cuban Guayaba y Queso Cheesecake (Guava Topped Cheesecake)
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)
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)
