CHRISTMAS DINNER

PUERTO RICAN CHRISTMAS DINNER MENU

Puerto Ricans tend to enjoy our big Christmas feast on Christmas Eve, or Nochebuena.

Today I’m sharing a menu for a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas dinner (recetas para Nochebuena)

 PUERTO RICAN CHRISTMAS DINNER MENU

Mofongo

A quintessential Puerto Rican starter is mofongo, which is also made from fried green plantains that have been mashed and mixed with other ingredients

Bacalaítos

Puerto Rican bacalaitos are fried salt cod fritters. These were a staple in my home growing up, and were always made before a big Puerto Rican feast.

Pernil

Puerto Rican Pork Roast (called pernil) is the centerpiece of a Puerto Rican Christmas dinner.

Flan de Coco

Flan, a light custard dessert, is another key dessert if you’re searching for Noche Buena food ideas.
