As soon as I say the words “Arroz con Pollo”, I have the best flashbacks of my mom’s cooking: those corn tortillas cooking on the “comal” until charred on the edges. They were the best that way. Staples of many Mexican kitchens like chicken, rice, tomatoes, onions, and chiles.
I am never without any of these ingredients in my pantry. As my abuelita Sarita used to say, “La bandera, chilé, cebolla, y tomaté”.
