Arroz Atollado is a typical dish from the Valle del Cauca region of Colombia. It can be prepared with chicken instead. I used to travel about one hour to the outskirts of Cali to get the best atollado, where it was prepared over log fires in a farm-like restaurant where the children could run around, ride horses, jump across a small river, and have lots of fun.
For all my friends who are constantly on a diet, this is one of the best reasons to break it.
