Sancocho- OK here is a recipe for a typical 'comfort' food in Puerto Rico Sancocho. It is a wonderful thick stew here they are using beef but I have more often had it with chicken and oft times it has ad rice in it as well. A more traditional one will have calabaza (pumpkin) in place of butternut squash
Sample Lechón with the Locals (Puerto Rico). 'If you were to draw the Puerto Rican food pyramid, it might only have four elements – rice, beans, plantains and pork. It’s the mighty lechón (savory, smoky, suckling pig, spit-roasted for up to eight hours) that remains the island’s favorite lunch.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/puerto-rico
PR Fruits...."Quenepas" I used to gulp these down like there was no tomorrow.Sounds like Kah-nay-pay. Bite the lime looking thing and suck out the seed which is covered in pulp which you then suck from the seed. A little bit sour but Delicious!!!
