Here's a creative twist on a classic Puerto Rican dish!
Mofongo is often considered Puerto Rico's most popular dish. It's typically served as a mound of fried, mashed green (not ripe) plantains, mashed garlic and small pieces of crunchy chicharrón. Mofongo can be enjoyed on its own, as a side dish, or as a main course stuffed with chicken, beef, seafood or your filling of choice. While I love a classic mofongo, I decided to get creative this time around and made these meatball-sized mofongo bites. For my protein, I chose turkey, along with some crunchy bacon. The result? To die for.
