Puerto Rican Arroz Con Pollo

Wednesday, June 2, 2010


Many variations of arroz con pollo can be found throughout Latin America and the Caribbean but some claim that it is the unofficial national dish of Puerto Rico. The dish, literally meaning "rice with chicken," is thought to have originated in Spain and has definite similarities with the popular Spanish dish, paella. The pimiento-stuffed green olives in this version are a signature addition from Puerto Rico.

Paella Mixta

Monday, April 19, 2010


Paella has become the national dish of Spain and a symbol of Spanish cuisine in the eyes of many people outside of Spain. However, though you can find paella throughout Spain, it is truly a regional specialty of Valencia. Traditionally, the seasonings in paella are simple - saffron, garlic, salt and pepper - allowing the natural flavors of the meats and seafood to shine. But the beauty of this dish is that you can load it with the ingredients of your choice. My personal favorite is paella mixta, made with all sorts of seafood, sausage and chicken.
