Related to tamale , hallacas , and guanimes , pasteles are believed to have been made by natives of Boriquen(Puerto Rico). Tainos made masa from cassava and squash. The masa was then filled with beans, corn, nuts, meat (Iguana, frogs or birds), fish and wrapped in corn husk. The pastel has also African roots. The African slaves incorporated the use of plantains, bananas and other root vegetables into the pasteles recipe. Puerto Rico has turned pasteles making into an art having hundreds of recipes and an annual pastel festival (Festival Nacional del Pastel Puertorriqueño)  on the island.
