Puerto Rican dishesoriginated from Europe (Spain), Africa and the native Taínos. More recently, Puerto Rican dishes have have been greatly influenced by ingrediants coming from the United States. They are also often well-seasoned with combinations of many flavorful spices. The base of many Puerto Rican main dishes involves sofrito. A proper sofrito is a sauté of freshly ground garlic, tomatoes, onions, recao/culantro, cilantro, red peppers, cachucha and cubanelle peppers. Sofrito is traditionally cooked with olive oil or annatto oil, tocino (bacon), salted pork and cured ham. A mix of stuffed olives and capers called alcaparrado are usually added with spices such as bay leaf, cumin, sazón and adobo.
