My Guatemalan sister-in-law taught me how to make this rice. In Guatemala, it is served with almost any meal, and is accompanied by black beans, salsa, and corn tortillas.

Used leeks (had to use them up) was still fantastic. Will be a staple in my kitchen. Also makes excellent fried rice with leftovers! Read More

I added sweet corn and spinach to make it more colorful. Also I had used paprika to give it a spicy texture since my family doesn't like bland food. It turned out wonderful and everyone loved it! Will definitely make it more often. Read More
