I don't know about you, but I am STUFFED from all of this Christmas celebrating. My dad always loves to make a big, Cuban roasted pig and we're left enjoying it for the rest of the week--or sometimes even longer!

If you're like my Latino family, you're probably enjoying a ton of pork during this Holiday as well. But if you're anything like me, though, eating the same dish over and over again is just too much to handle. I definitely can't keep eating the same old pork dish over and over again--which is why these 5 delicious Latin recipes are just perfect for all of those post-Christmas roast pork leftovers. I'm really enjoying these right now, and I guarantee you will, too!
