How do I love thee? Let me count the ways . . .

My roasted red peppers have a supporting role in this personal favorite: Arroz con Pollo (Yellow Rice with Chicken) . . .


This is a very traditional Cuban dish, brought over to the New World from Spain. It's been called a poor man's paella, because there's no seafood in it. I call it sublime comfort food.

My version calls for adding golden raisins to the cooking liquid, and serving with sliced lemons or limes . . . and don't forget the red peppers. Must have red peppers . . .

This looks really good! And there's something about red peppers that are so much better than green. Besides, they're much prettier to photograph!
