Mofongo is a fried plantain dish that is usually served with fried chicharron (pork crackling) or any other fried pieces of meat.

Yes, the ingredients alone make most people clutch their chests. I admit it's not for the calorie-conscious but it is one of Puerto Rico's most treasured meals and deserves a try. (Actually, there's been a debate for years whether it originates from the Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico. I'm both Dominican and Puerto Rican so I can claim it either way. :) )

There are so many variations of the meal I'm going to link to one of my favourites: This recipe from Dominican cooking is wonderful. At some point I'll probably add my own recipe to the site but for now, definitely try this one.

Buen provecho! <3
