Arroz Relleno (Stuffed Rice)-my mother-in-law's favorite dish.
serves-a whole bunch of people, or about 6
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt & pepper to taste
Dried oregano to taste
1 to 2 tbsp of tomato paste
2 cups of rice
1/2 cup of mayonnaise or more as needed.
Take one whole chicken and boil it until cooked, about one hour.
When the chicken is cool, remove it from the bone shredding the meat.
Place the rice in a sauce pan and cover with 3 1/2 cups of the chicken cooking liquid, bring to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. (do NOT salt the rice.)
In a large skillet heat 1 to 2 tbsp of olive oil. Add the onion, pepper and garlic; sautee about 5 to 10 minutes.
In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 5 cup baking pan, (a bundt pan is specially nice).
Spoon 1/3 of the rice into the baking pan smoothing it out evenly. Spread 1 to 2 tbsp of mayonnaise over the rice, evenly. Spread half the chicken mixture evenly over this layer
And we've had enough of homey warmy food, we need some SUN, and no bugs, cause they're out in armies already so
