Meaty or sweet renditions
The Mixed Stew crew used chorizo for our puto buns but you can use an endless list of ingredients. We suggest using regular chopped hotdog franks or even luncheon meat in a pinch. Also, try adding tasty veggies, such as chopped spinach or diced sundried tomatoes. Add chopped egg omelet pieces and shredded cheese to make a breakfast nibbler. What about sweet puto? Sprinkle in some cinnamon for a rice cake twist on cinnamon buns. Try sweet beans or coconut flakes. Finally, adding sliced dates and crushed walnuts to puto can make for yummy sweetness and crunch in every bite.
