Are you obsessed with Pinterest? Us too! Whenever we need inspiration for a new table setting or want a quick tip to decorate for a party or, yes, are looking for a new special recipe, it's the first place we go. We just can't help it, with so many great things to find, it's a wonder that we don't get sucked in more often. And judging from our own Pinterest page (and our site!), you're loving TLK on Pinterest.
Here are The Latin Kitchen's 10 most pinned recipes, including classics like Puerto Rican pastelon and mofongo, a drool-worthy Argentine empanada, and a bright and refreshing pineapple agua fresca. Enjoy! (And for even more foodporn goodness, follow The Latin Kitchen on Pinterest!)
Puerto Rican Pastelón
This traditional one-dish meal is too hard to resist with a whopping 154 pins and counting! The pastelon is a traditional Puerto Rican dish of layered sweet plantains and a savory ground beef mixture. Baked off and served casserole style, it's hearty and comforting and you'll be sure to find it on abuela's table.
Pineapple Ague Fresca
Watermelon agua fresco may be more traditional, but our Pinterest fans can't get enough of this one with 145 pins! Tart and sweet, it's a perfect addition to your spring and summer recipe repertoire. And if you're hosting brunch or cocktails, mix in your favorite spirit for a new twist.
Puerto Rican Rice & Pigeon Peas
Coming in with 83 pins, this traditional Caribbean dish is typically enjoyed around Christmas. It's a humble, classic dish made with a sofrito base, rice, and crunchy pigeon peas or gandules. Serve it up with pernil and tostones and your meal is complete.
Cuban Roja Vieja
It's hard to resist this dish and those on Pinterest certainly can't! It's currently up to 73 pins. Ropa vieja is a Cuban classic made with shredded flank or skirt steak simmered in a savory tomato sauce spiced with chipotle chiles, onions, garlic, and tangy olives. Spoon it over fluffy white rice for dinner.
Is it any wonder that one of the best Latin sandwiches already has 54 pins on Pinterest? You can't belly up to any deli counter without seeing this pressed sandwich on the menu. The outside is toasted to a crisp and inside it's stuffed with layers of ham, stringy and melted cheese, crisp pickles, and a layer of bright mustard.
Salsa de Chile Arbol
Who doesn't love a little something caliente with their chips? This delicious salsa has 21 well-deserved pins! It's quick and easy (with only 4 ingredients and made in 15 minutes) and perfect with tacos, tortillas, or just spooned over rice and beans.
Puerto Rican Mofongo
This classic mofongo recipe has 19 pins! Found all over the island (and with an infinite number of variations) mofongo starts with a salty, garlic plantain base that is fried and either left plain or stuffed with meat or seafood. It can be a street side snack or elevated to fine dining.
This classic Argentine empanada has 15 pins and growing. The flaky and buttery puff pastry is stuffed with sirloin beef spiced with warm cumin and fiery paprika, sweet onions, and classic hard boiled egg then baked until golden and delicious.
