Latin Stacks

Latin Stacks

Yummy, crispy, and slightly sweet plantains topped with a chicken avocado salsa on top? That’s seriously delicious. I created this recipe because I love main dishes that get you two fruits and veggies and your protein all in one bite. The unforeseen awesomeness of this dish, though, is that is can also work as well for an appetizer as it does for a side dish.

Game of Thrones-Inspired Paleo Beef Stew

Game of Thrones-Inspired Paleo Beef Stew

Over the last few months I’ve been reading the Game of Thrones books. Well, I’ve been listening to them via Audible e-books. I’ve never gotten such a hankering for ale and beef stew with barley. Obviously barley isn’t an option on the paleo diet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make a delicious paleo beef stew that’s reminiscent of what all the Stark clan ate on their journeys. The key is simplicity and letting the vegetables bring the flavor.

Paleo Chicken Meatballs with Apple and Oregano

Paleo Chicken Meatballs with Apple and Oregano

During the Kentucky Derby this year, I got on a bourbon kick after making some mint juleps. That meant I traveled to my nearest liquor store (that happened to be going out of business) and bought a bunch of the good stuff. And because I didn’t want to become an alcoholic by drinking it all, I started experimenting with using it in cooking. Enter the chicken meatballs.

Paleo Shredded Pork Tamale

Paleo Shredded Pork Tamale

I wasn’t sure what to call this since it in no way looks like a tamale, but it tastes like on in all the best ways. So paleo shredded pork tamale seemed like the closes description for the dish. I tried this paleo experiment on a whim when I ran across corn husks in the supermarket. I know corn isn’t paleo, but could you use cornhusks for flavor?

Puerto Rican Steaks

Puerto Rican Steaks

Come to find out, there are so many foods in Latin America that don’t even taste remotely like Mexican food. (Who’d have thought?) One of my recent favorites is something called bistec encebollado (but we’ll call it Puerto Rican steaks for our purposes).

Chicken, Bacon, Tarragon Pinwheels

Chicken, Bacon, Tarragon Pinwheels

I remember the day I learned bacon wasn’t just for breakfast. It might have just been the second happiest day of my life—rivaling only when I got to marry my beautiful wife. It was bacon wrapped chicken, in pinwheel form. Absolutely delicious. This recipe pays homage to that discovery.

Paleo Chicken Chili Recipe

Paleo Chicken Chili Recipe

Since marrying an Argentine girl, I’ve come to love beef. Cows are pretty much a required dietary item in Argentina. But I also realize red meat isn’t the finest thing to consume in mass quantities. That’s why I made this paleo chicken chili recipe—to still get the deliciousness of the beefy meal, without the heaviness of the red meat.

Paleo Cajun Roast Recipe

Paleo Cajun Roast Recipe

My grandpa was a true cajun. Gumbo, dirty rice, boudin…that’s what we ate when we went over to my grandparents’ house. But one of my favorite things he used to make was his cajun roast. It wasn’t spicy, but the flavors gave your tastebuds a bear hug and wouldn’t let go. So delicious.

Argentine Guiso with Roasted Cauliflower

Argentine Guiso with Roasted Cauliflower

Argentine guiso is basically a stew. The tastes can range anywhere from Irish to Italian. My mother-in-law’s guiso is a bit more Italian, with a mixture of tomato sauce, peas, and pasta. I tried to recreate it anytime my wife felt homesick early in our marriage. And since then, it’s become a staple at our house—even when we transitioned to the paleo diet.
