I really love to prepare this dish. Especially, because I am in the process of weaning myself off of meat. A falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern dish that is infused with fresh herbs, spices and garbanzo beans. It is served in a warm pita with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and drizzled with tahini sauce (Tahini sauce is made from ground sesame seeds). When this dish is made correctly the flavors are a pleasure to the pallet. This recipe will easily feed a family of four.
This is a very tasty and delightful Latin American Stew. The flavors are sure to explode in your mouth. It all begins with the base for your stew called Sofrito. It is a combination of onions, peppers, tomato sauce, garlic, adobo, Sazon and fresh cilantro. Even though this recipe for San Cocho Stew calls for chicken and/or pork, you can feel free to use the meat of your choice.
1 lb chicken pieces
1 lb pork neck bones
1/2 bush fresh cilantro
1 yellow plantain peeled (cut into 1/2″ pieces)

2 whole ears of corn (cut into 1/4″ pieces)

Homemade salsa verde is a great topping to put on chicken, pork or steak. It can even add flavor to tacos or wraps. If you are a fan of Mexican cuisine, this recipe is a must to try at least once. You can find tomatillos with the husks on at any Spanish American supermarket. It only requires a little preparation and the leftovers store very well in the refrigerator (keep it in an air tight container).
10-12 large tomatillos (outer husk removed) & cut in half
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large jalapeño (chopped coarsely & deseeded)
1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
1/2 lime (juiced)
6 medium garlic cloves (peeled)
1/2 bush of fresh cilantro (bottom stalk cut & discarded)
Get ready, because this recipe is really mouth watering. The ingredients are surprisingly uncomplicated — you probably have them in your kitchen already. The dipping sauce is the big draw — its explosion of flavor will blow your mind. The hardest part of cooking this Peruvian Roasted Chicken with Dipping Sauce is marinating the chicken overnight (because you’ll have to wait til tomorrow night to taste it). But it’s definitely worthwhile.
