Have you ever had tostones or maduros? Next, I'll have to put up a recipe for Picadillo.

I understood from a comment on Food Network that the actual translation was "old rags" and referred to the homemade pasta that was torn into pieces.

It does mean old rags, but referring to the meat being torn (or shredded if you may)...

You know, my school cafeteria used to serve that, and I never ate it because "old clothes" doesn't sound very appealing. It was shredded beef with black beans, but i just couldn't over the name... *shudder*

Not Cuban, they don't do spicy. Chipotle is SW and/or Mexican. Cuba seems to be one of the Caribbean countries that does mild.

It always amazes me that so many people think that Puerto Rican food and Cuban food is spicy... It's so opposite, I find the flavors wonderfully carribbean without all the heat, which is refreshing...
