Skillfully lugged through my fridge this morning and opted for Cuban Rice! This recipe is so simple and easy that didn’t require much work during preparation. I love Cuban food mostly for the Caribbean influence in spice and flavor. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy like I’m on the warm isles!
Try it out for your self. A simple, easy and satisfying comfort dish.
•2 cups rotisserie chicken (shredded)
•1 cup frozen peas
•2 1/2 cups chicken broth
•Yellow rice mix
•Chili Pepper & cilantro (optional for garnish)
* Annato can be found on Walmart and Amazon websites
– Make your rice as directed. keep warm.
– Bring your broth and annatto to a boil. Add your peas, and shredded chicken into the pot. Simmer gently for a few minutes until your flavors mend and Broth has evaporated. Add your rice and gently simmer for another minute or two.
– Garnish with cilantro and chili peppers to your liking.
Done! now sit back and enjoy your simple island meal full of flavor.
Optional: you may also add any other vegetables chopped small if you like Ie; Carrots, onions, olives etc…
