Meant to indulge, hearty, bring immense joy.

Today we will take a look at the best dishes from the Dominican Republic that are perfect for Easter, better known in the DR as Lent.

These dishes are all incredibly hearty and relatively easy to make, and many can even be made ahead of time.

Also commonly referred to as Dominican sweet beans. It is one of the best-known traditional Dominican Republic desserts that is made around Easter time.

Today, bacalao is one of the most popular ingredients used during Lent. Furthermore, bacalao dishes quickly became the best-known fish dish as well.


Chacá (Corn Pudding)


This is definitely a dish that you will find at any Dominican Easter celebration! Also often referred to as “Maiz Caquiao,” this is a type of cracked corn pudding.
