Here at Congreso Cubano, we like to explore all sorts of Latin cuisines, not just Cuban. Recently, we decided to have some fun with some of our favorite Mexican flavors and, after a lot of tests and tweaks we ended up with this delicious dish. This dish consists of two basic parts: the mole and the cookie. Top it off with your garnishes for a beautiful piece.
Recently, yours truly, Orlando Vega, founded Congreso Cubano, now a popular latin pop-up restaurant in New Orleans. I wanna share a recipe with you that my partner in crime, Rick Ostry, and I have been serving up. As a Miami native, it reminds me particularly of home because it includes so many of my favorite ingredients. It’s basically a layer-cake of savory Latin goodness with influences from many places. I highly recommend making it in bulk for large parties as its an affordable dish to scale up and its the holidays so why not share? One note, get started on this dish early!
