What a delicious dish with smoked sausage! Just wonderful flavors!
This is a dish for me. Very pretty. I love using achiote with rice. I would have to agree with MaryMoh and add some fresh garden peas.
Baking is my Zen
I've seen this cheese in the store. I'll give it a try.
Is this the cheese I saw at Shop n Stop, hmmm I think I have been wanting to try it, because it said you could simply fry it in pieces? I have to go there and get some ingredients and make this! Yum
This rice looks so good, I love all the flavors involved. Need to get some ingredients. I like queso blanco a lot. It's delicious.
Can I substitute sazon for the achiote? Is it just a color thing or is there a major taste difference?
Christina- You can substitute the sazon goya for achiote.
Thank you guys for the comments! I truly appreciate it!
