Iguana Stew

Ingredients

1 iguana
1 large onion
4 teaspoons achiote oil
1 pinch pepper

Preparation

1
Kill the iguana by cutting off its head. Open the belly lengthwise and remove all the entrails and the rectum.

Cook in salted water until the meat is tender; take care not to let it get too soft. Peel and cut in portions.
3
Season with all the remaining ingredients and cook with about 1 cup water, until almost dry.

 



About

Make achiote oil by frying achiote slowly in oil until the oil is red. Look for iguana in Latin American specialty stores, or substitute 2 pounds of chicken.
