Vegan: Fried Green Plantains With Guacamole

The Vegan Experience J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

There's nothing revolutionary about this recipe in terms of technique—the plantains are a typical Colombian side dish called patacones (those'd be tostones if you're from Puerto Rico), and the sauce is a tomatoed-up version of my Basic Guacamole.

The Vegan Experience: Maduros with Mint Mojo

The Vegan Experience J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

Soft and tender plantains with a lightly greasy exterior and a sweet, caramelized flavor, maduros don't have the crispness you may expect from a starchier fried food, but that's part of their appeal. When sprinkled with a little salt and served with an acidic sauce, you can't ask for a better snack or hors d'oeuvres. More

Ajiaco: Colombian Chicken and Potato Soup

Serious Eats J. Kenji López-Alt 21 comments

Hot Dog Of The Week: Perro Caliente

Hot Dog of the Week Hawk Krall 16 comments

[Photographs and original artwork: Hawk Krall] This week's dog is perhaps one of the craziest things I've ever eaten in my life. After first reading about Colombian hot dogs, I assumed they were just a variation on Mexican hot dogs. Boy was I wrong. The Perro Caliente is something totally different. With no plans to visit South America anytime soon, I was happy to discover that Queens in New York has plenty of Colombian fast food restaurants serving various incarnations of the Perro Caliente....
