Welcome to CaribbeanPot.com and no, there’s NO reference to “pot” the feel-good bush. This is all about food and the culinary culture of the Caribbean. You’ll notice that there’s more focus on the cuisine of Trinidad and Tobago and that’s simply because that’s my roots. However I do share dishes from all the beautiful islands which make up the Caribbean from time to time.
Pollo Guisada starts with sofrito, the base of Puerto Rican cuisine. Sofrito is to Puerto Rican food what a mirepoix is to French cooking or the trinity is to Cajun/Creole Cuisine. The Guisada was full of pieces of chicken on the bone, peppers, garlic, onions, herbs, tomato sauce, potatoes, and cilantro. Delicious!!! The recipe follows and I heartily recommend that you try this one. Your family will love it.
