September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (92 votes)

This Puerto Rican one-dish chicken and rice stew is rich in flavor.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I just made this dish. It was very tasty and easy. For me it is basically chicken and rice. You need to have a good cooking pot, I used a cast aluminum one. As one person noted, typical Puerto Rican food is not spicy hot. I enjoy PR food...

Not true PRican Asopao

Asopao does not have anaheim nor poblano peppers-- that is for mexican dishes. We use a base called sofrito which includes a mix of finely chopped; greenpeppers (sweet peppers), onions, garlic and cilantro/culantro. This is then sauteed in achiote oil until all the water is cooked out. It's a simple and healthy enough dish, Eating Well should've double checked the recipe before posting this mess.
