    Hey,

    Your food is perfect! Doubled your recipes and the entire pot was gone in one night. Do you know how to make the cheese empanadas and the beef empanadas, also they give you a green sauce that’s a little hot with avacado pieces in it to put on the empanadas. The cheese empanadas is a sliced square white cheese inside. Very very good, but I would like to make them at home.

    Thanks for the website. you should open a restaurant, :) !

    Thanks

    Christine

      Christine,
      Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment. I actually plan on posting a recipe on how to make empanada (pastelito) dough from scratch and some sample fillings like beef, chicken and cheese. That will probably be in the middle of December because I have a couple of recipes that I will be posting before then though. In the meantime, I usually use the store bought pastry discs from the brand “La Fe”, the dough tastes very good and is very easy to find in the frozen section of most supermarkets. If you cannot find the brand “La Fe”, look for “Goya” brand. If you want to see a sample recipe on how to make pastelitos (empanadas), check out this recipe for creamy guava turnovers. If you want to make it with cheese, you can use any cheese of your choice really, but some common choices (for white cheeses) are cheddar, mozzarella (this cheese is very bland though), colby, etc. You can also make a combination of different cheeses, like mix white and yellow cheeses to make a tastier empanada.
      As far as the green sauce, I usually don’t serve empanadas with the green sauce but I have seen several versions. It’s usually made with olive oil, fresh cilantro, a hint of garlic, salt, pepper and a splash of lime juice (the lime juice will keep the sauce green, but use a little bit so that it’s not sour) and some diced avocado. To make it hot you can add a little bit of finely chopped hot chile or jalapeño, or use a spicy habanero chile (aji gustoso).

      I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any further questions. :)

        Omg please do lol, I am officially addicted to your website. My husband is dominican, and he is as dominican as they come. He is in the air-force and we recently got shipped to Germany. I hate wasting money on fast food. So I’ve been looking for recipes all over to cook! Found some pretty good ones but yours are the best! Thank you!

    Hey I looked at these recipes and they seem like a wonderful addition to our menu. Very tasty, I can’t wait to start cooking them. Question: do you think that you can put up recipes of Habichuelas con Dulce y Maiz con Dulce? I would love to learn how to do them.

      Andrelly,
      I do have a recipe for habichuela con dulce, I actually have the pictures I just wasn’t planning on posting it until it was closer to “semana santa” since that is the really popular season to make it. I’ll put it up higher on the list. :)

      Annie,
      I actually have the pictures for the flan recipe, I just have been so swamped with work and other things that I haven’t really had time to work on them. I will be posting it soon, hopefully in the next couple of weeks (along with carne de res guisada). I apologize for the wait, but I promise it’s coming! :) If you want it sooner (without pics), I can send it to you via email with very detailed instructions.

    Thank you so much for putting up this site!

    I am from New York City and of Dominican decent but joined the military (stationed overseas) and was in desperate need of some of my favorite foods. The recipes you added are great and easy to follow. I am looking forward to making some of these dishes you provided. One thing though, do you think you could add a recipe for Bistec Encebollado? I know my moms recipe but I would love yo see your variation of it. :)

    Omg, this dish was so wonderful. I have been trying to replicate a dish from my fave cuban restaurant that is now closed. I know your roots are different, but this is the closest thing i have found. Absolutly wonderful. Your step by step directions are fabulous. Flavor blast supreme. This white gal from south georgia has much appreciation for this traditional dominican dish. No wonder it is a staple of your cuisine. Thank you.

    Love the site! :)

    Can you create a grocery list? Often times, I try following a recipe but I’m either missing something or don’t have all the ingredients. Can you make a list of things you shop for when you go grocery shopping? I never know what to buy so I end up getting lots of unnecessary things.

    Thank you!
