Arroz Con Queso - Rice With Cheese (Bolivia)
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
9 ingredients
4-6 servings
I used this recipe for week 32 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook on meal from every nation on Earth, and Bolivia is my 32nd stop. Unless otherwise noted, my Travel by Stove recipes are taken from authentic or traditional sources, and this recipe has been posted without any alternations or additions to the ingredients. This Bolivian side dish is made with a fresh farmer's cheese; "kolla" (traditionally used) is saltier than queso fresco, so when making this be sure to taste and add salt according to your preferences.
