Tasajo is made from jerked beef that’s stewed in a tomato-based sauce with lots of peppers and onions. I love this dish! Every time I have a bite of Mami’s tasajo, it brings me back to the Formica dining table in our old duplex in Westchester, one of the most Latin neighborhoods in Miami (outside of Little Havana and Hialeah, of course). What I love about this dish is the saltiness and the texture.

I love, love arroz congri made with red beans, Spanish chorizo and salt pork. There are different variations on this dish, but what I love about Cuban red beans and rice is the smoky, salty, flavors of cured meats mixed with cumin and oregano. It’s perfect with chicken, beef, and pork.

Comforting Cuban chicken soup is on every abuela's arsenal! This is the cure if anyone has a cold or is just a bit under the weather! Chicken noodle soup seems so basic I almost didn't add this recipe to the blog, but it's my favorite soup and it just takes me back to my childhood and feeling loved on when I had a cold. Lots of love goes into making this Cuban chicken soup and even if it doesn't cure the common cold, it cures the common cold blues.

These meringue cookies, known as merenguitos, are a traditional Cuban cookie that’s easy to make with just three ingredients! It’s the perfect treat to whip up with the leftover egg whites you’ll have after making crema de vie (aka Cuban eggnog). Crema de vie and merenguitos are quite pair at Christmas time.

Cubans have their own version of eggnog known as crema de vie, and if you have a sweet tooth, you've got to try it! The Spanish translation for Crema de Vie is cream of life, and I can see why it's called that. It tastes a lot like spiked flan because it has very similar ingredients.
