I'm sure many would agree this dish is part of the Colombian gastronomic tradition. I love it because of its simple preparation and the fact that it yields many portions. A delicious combination of meats, vegetables and rice cooked to perfection. In my family it was customary to let tía Adriana cook it, she was appointed by the whole family, since she was the number one expert in making the recipe for Arroz Atollado.
There are two important secrets in the preparation of this dish, the first one is that the rice grows perfectly among the meats that accompany it; it cannot be too dry or too wet, and especially not plump. The second secret is to allow the right amount of cooking time to each ingredient.
Today, I want to introduce to you another family recipe made with a lot of love, tradition, and of course, lots of Colombian flavor.
