Making and serving pasteles during the holidays is a Puerto Rican tradition and is a popular dish in many Latin America and Caribbean countries. Pasteles are savory treats that are typically the product of a family team effort. Each person in the family, even the youngest, is assigned a job of grating, mixing, stuffing, or wrapping. Pasteles are made with pork or chicken and adobo stuffing. Then they are encased in a green plantain or yuca masa and wrapped in banana leaves. Finally, they are wrapped in a specialty paper that is engineered to withstand the boiling process. Traditional pasteles are boiled, not steamed. Hold your pasteles together with the best quality pasteles paper, available from Oren International.
