This dish is a Cuban dish adopted by many . It is easy to make very flavorful. You can make it with long grain rice like the original version, or also use jasmine rice which will make it even more aromatic; just use one cup of water per cup of rice. You could also use canned beans to make it even easier. I hope you can give this version a try with loved ones ;)
