Is  Puerto Rico  Food Spicy?

By HappySpicyHour

The Puerto Rican food is not on the hot side

it’s not as spicy as you may think. It’s not considered super-hot, only flavorful. But there are many dishes for spicy food lovers can try.


The jibarito is a classic Puerto Rican sandwich composed of steak, garlicky mayo, tomato, lettuce, and cheese sandwiches between two slices of mashed and fried plantains. This one good with hot sauce.


Pernil is a roasted pig popular in Puerto Rico. The pork is often seasoned with oregano, black pepper, garlic, and chili. Most Puerto Ricans understand how to cook the pork tenderly, so it easily slides off the bone when served.


Sofrito is not a dish itself, but we feel like this dish deserves a place on this list because it plays a crucial role in most Puerto Rican foods. This dish is a sauce that is used as a base for different dishes.


Every sofrito recipe differs lightly, but the main ingredients are red peppers, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, aji dulces peppers, and red peppers. You must slice those ingredients and throw them into a food processor to make one.
