Where or where are the Puerto Rican pasteles???

I live in Atwater California, up in the Central Valley near Merced, and was wondering if there is anyone in the business of making pork, chicken and rice Puerto Rican pasteles that ships them in California?

    Check out eBay because I entered Pasteles and found some auctions that will take your order and mail them to you direct frozen.

    Use the recipes for the masa,but the filling can be a lot of things. Always has pork,onion and achiote,but the possibilities are endless after that.Ask your husband what his mother or grandmother used to use as filling,and that will probably be his favorite. I have had pasteles with potato pieces and even corn in the filling,so I guess it's a choice,just like what kind of toppings people like on pizza.

    You might be able to get what you want at some Cuban restaurants

    and bakery. I know of one in Glendale you might want to check out Cuban Bakeries in San Francisco. It is interestig some of the Cuban places will sell Puerto Rican pasteles.
