For all those Puerto Ricans living in the far flung reaches of the “Empire” here is something to bring tears to your eyes, a recipe for “Pasteles”.

As for the ingredients I don’t know where you are going to find plantains in Missouri, yautia in Utah, or achiote in Arkansas but if you are lucky enough to have one of those Caribbean Bodegas near you then you just might find what you need.
Personally, I have not tasted Ms. Daisy’s Pasteles but judging from the recipe I don’t see how you could go wrong. Buen Provecho !
