  • Maybe his mother would like to try a favorite dish of his new in-laws. Something native to where you live instead of where she lives.

  • Nope. The Puerto Ricans I know all eat "American Foods". Look on, There may be recipes on those sites.

  • You should be able to find mofongo recipes on I've seen it made on there. Just smashed plantains, garlic, and some sort of meat or fish on top isn't it...

  • Peel and boil plantains and mash with butter and salt. Cook red onions in a little olive oil with a little dash of white vinager. Serve with onion mixture or top off with a slice of fried salami. Great for a breakfast dish.
