Cuban Spicy Yellow Rice
25 mins (prep 5, cooking 20)
11 ingredients
4 servings
Authentic yellow rice, Cuban style, with a little bit of DH's spicy flair, without worrying about the cost of saffron. This is a must in our house. Its fast, simple, so yummy, even the kids love it. I usually have to double recipe so I can bring leftovers to work. Goes great with our Cuban chuck eye steak and Chimichurri topping, or even a marinated chicken dish.
