    This was very tasty. I parboiled the potatoes so it cooked faster. I scarmbled eggs to serve with it and everyone loved it.

    This turned out great and came together quickly. My only suggestion is to somehow reduce the salt. It was a little salty

    I added Chorizo which was a nice touch! potatoes take a little longer to cook so i recommend cooking those first. Girlfriend loved it since it had all her favorite ingredients.

    My Colombian husband and I loved it but we agreed that it is not really a Cuban dish. Next time I will be sure to have some fried plantains on the side!

    It was great! I used La Costeña salsa Verde just because I didn't have time to make fresh salsa verde.

    The pork and corn had some great flavor, combined with the salsa and cheese. I didn’t cook the potatoes beforehand so they were still a little firm. Next time I’d do those in a separate pan to soften and brown them up

    while this recipe sounds delicious... nothing about this recipe is cuban haha we dont use cilantro ... this very much sounds like a mexican recipe with the addition of cilantro and corn and salsa and queso fresco... lol

    It was spicy, but besides that it was rather bland. It also didn't seem very cohesive.
