I debated long and hard about whether or not to include this recipe in this book, even though it’s one of my favorite things to do with leftover rice. I thought about not including it because it doesn’t look like a sexy recipe. But then I slapped some sense into myself and remembered that this book isn’t about foo-foo dishes. It’s about delicious dishes.
This is a traditional South American plate. You’ll find some riff on it in almost every market in South America. It’s sometimes served with fried potatoes as well, but I think they are kind of overkill unless you happen to live in the high Andes.
