Centro Hispano helps us make a fun Puerto Rican dish, even though it's Cinco de Mayo. (5/5/14)

Ingredients:

Green (unripe) plantains

Garlic

Extra virgin olive oil

Pork rinds (optional)

Oregano

Vegetable oil or preferred frying oil

Heat the frying oil in a deep fryer pan. Cut the plantains into about 1 inch length pieces. Once the oil is hot, fry the plantains until golden to golden/brown. Take the plantains out and wait about a minute for them to cool down. In a pilón (wooden mortar) smash one garlic, add about a tablespoon of the olive oil, about an inch of the pork rinds and a hint of oregano, then add about 3-4 pieces of the fried plantain and smash them to mix. Once everything is mixed make a ball with your hands.

Chicken broth

Ingredients:

3 cups of water

Green onions

Puerto Rican sofrito (2 tbs)

A hint of salt

One chicken drum or thigh

Laurel leaves (2-3)

Heat the water to medium temperature, then add the rest of the ingredients. Let it cook for about an hour.

Fried chicken

Ingredients:

Chicken thighs

Adobo goya

Frying oil

Season the chicken with adobo goya. Deep fry until golden brown.
