I enjoy to blend and match Latin meals from various Central and South American nations to develop meals with Latin blend. Attempt this with a few of my Latin favorites such as Cilantro Lime Rice,  Barbacoa Beef, Sugary Food Barbacoa Pork, Mexican Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas, Slow Cooked Pernil, and Pollo Sabroso, among others.

This is my go to dish for hectic weeknights when I don’t have time to make beans from dried. Tommy enjoys them so I make them frequently.
