Three Guys From Miami: Cuban and Spanish Food Recipes

Jorge Castillo: Many people don't realize that there are a lot of Cubans of Chinese descent. The Chinese have also influenced Cuban cuisine, giving us fried rice and several types of stir-fry.

Raúl Musibay: This recipe is for a sweet and spicy chicken stir-fry.

Glenn Lindgren: Make sure your mangoes are very ripe! They should be easy to slice.

Jorge Castillo: If you're like Raúl or me, and it's summer, you can just walk out to your backyard and pick a few fresh mangoes right off the tree.

Raúl Musibay: If not, make a trip to your local grocer. Most carry mangoes all year round -- the off-season mangoes come from Mexico and Central America.
