Ropa Vieja

Smokey red pepper stew from Cuba

Ropa Vieja means “old clothes” in Spanish. There is a Cuban legend that a poor man once shredded the shirt off his back to feed his hungry family. As the fragments of fabric cooked in a pot, they transformed miraculously into strips of meat – and so Cuba’s national dish was born. Made with tomato, peppers, and sweet and smoky paprika, Ropa Vieja is Caribbean home-cooking at its best: humble, healthy, and sprinkled with magic.

  • 2 handcrafted Cuban spice mixes
