When it comes to preparing the holiday menu, it does have to be stressful. With a little bit of planning ahead and preparation, the holidays can be stress-free and merry.

Here is my family’s go-to Christmas lunch menu that is easy, fast, and most importantly, delicious.

Belqui's Twist

Roasted chicken is a staple in Latin cooking for basically any holiday or party because it’s easy to season and feeds many. Works amazing on turkey too!

Gandules Guisados (Stewed Pigeon Peas)

Belqui's Twist

Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, and Cubans are big on this classic bean recipe. Our ingredients vary a bit, but the end result is very similar. These gandules are usually served as a side along with white rice, with chicken, beef, or pork, or alone as a meat-free meal. Since I can remember, for family gatherings and holidays, this gandules recipe is a must.

Belqui's Twist

This is a typical white rice recipe that always accompanies any kind of beans - especially in the Caribbean and Latin countries. At our home, we make big batches so we can have leftovers.

Happy holidays!
