Menu: A Puerto Rican Christmas Feast

The Menu

Planning Tips

  1. Read writer Kathleen Squire's account of her first Puerto Rican Christmas—and the magnificent, sprawling feast she ate.

  2. Sofrito, which lincludes sauteed pepper, ham, onions, and garlic, is the multipurpose seasoning base that forms the foundation of many Puerto Rican dishes, including this menu's tostones. See the recipe.

  3. Leftover pernil makes delicious day-after pork sandwiches.

  4. Serving coquito, the Puerto Rican take on eggnog loaded with coconut and rum, is an exciting and delicious way to switch up the standard holiday drink. See our gallery for more eggnog ideas.
