Sabor de Cuba: Recipes Full of Flavor

Plate of ropa vieja and white rice on a wooden table

Today we’re looking to the island of Cuba to feed our body and soul. Cuban cuisine is influenced by the island’s Caribbean neighbors, as well as Spanish and African dishes. Here are a few easy recipes that are perfect for hosting a meal with your friends.

Frijoles Negros may sound simple, but variety of spices add complexity and flavor to this dish. Traditionally, these have chorizo mixed in, but today Carina from Vegan Sazón shows us how to make these for vegans and in an Instant Pot!

Ropa Vieja is a beef dish with a ton of flavor, thanks to the long cooking time. You can make this in a slow cooker, or using the traditional stovetop method. La Cocina de Lety shows us her recipe for this flavorful favorite.

Rounding out this collection is one of our favorite desserts, Pastelitos de Guayaba. My Big Fat Cuban Family shows us how easy it is to crank these out. These sweet pastries can be made in large batches so they are great for BBQs and parties.
