What makes this version Caribbean is the use of vegetables found more commonly in the Caribbean. DH is from Colombia and has never heard of some of these ingredients. I've provided several options as far as the vegetables go so you can use whatever you can find. Green plantain, yautia, yucca root, potatoes all have a neutral taste. The yellow platain, sweet potato, batata, and squash are slightly sweet. I don't know if you have a secret way to cut the corn into rounds, but I find that I have to cook the corn first to soften the cob. I add it add serving time.
