What is mofongo, you ask. It’s mashed plantains with garlic and pork cracklings or bacon, as in the case of my recipe. It can be found gracing every table in Puerto Rico. It can be eaten as a side dish or with some sort of stewed meat or seafood, which is called mofongo relleno.


My daughter was the one who told me about mofongo. Mashed plantains with garlic and bacon! Sound good to me.
Making mofongo was easier than I thought. In this post, I made MOFONGO RELLENO POLLO. I used the mofongo as a bowl and filled it with creole chicken. It was so damn good! This dish opened my eyes to the food of Puerto Rico, which I want to explore more. If you’ve never had mofongo, it’s a must.

    I just had mofongo I think for the first time yesterday was is in love! I’ve had fried plantains before but it was just not the same. I am excited to try and make this! Thank you!

      Mofongo was introduced to me by my friend Jose who is from Puerto Rico. Traditionally, it’s made with pork rinds, which I changed to bacon. Either way, it’s delicious & so simple to make.
