  BONUS RECIPE 

My grandfather always taught me to never go empty handed when going to someones house or let visitors go hungry  :):). In honor of that, this is a quick and easy recipe for the holidays, wether you're hosting or visiting a relatives house . It can be made in less than ten minutes and even if you're not living in Puerto Rico you can find all the ingredients. I hope you enjoy it with your loved ones ;)

3. ADD THE PUREE OF PIGEON PEAS AND INVOLVE UNTIL WELL MIXED . UP UNTIL THIS POINT IS IS A VEGAN DIP IF YOU DON'T WANT TO ADD DAIRY. 

4. ADD THE  WORCESTERSHIRE SAUCE AND CREAM CHEESE. DEPENDING ON THE TEXTURE YOU WOULD LIKE THERE ARE TWO OPTIONS 

  • ​IF YOU LIKE A CHUNKIER TEXTURE, MIX THE CREAM CHEESE BY HAND. 

  • IF YOU LIKE IT SMOOTH THEN MIX EVERYTHING IN A BLENDER OR FOOD PROCESSOR . 

  • SECRET OPTION NUMBER THREE (HEHEHE..) IS TO MIX THE CREAM CHEESE WITH HALF OF THE PIGEON PEAS MITURE IN THE BLENDER AND THEN COMBINE WITH THE OTHER HALF BY HAND . THAT WAY YOU HAVE A COMPROMISE BETWEEN CHUNKY AND SMOOTH. 

5. SERVE WITH CRACKERS, PITA CHIPS, FLATBREAD OR CHIPS AND ENJOY ;)
