Arroz con pollo

Black beans...

Yellow rice...

Holy cow, I haven't blogged in a year!

Okay, that is about to change.

This arroz con pollo turned out to be incredible. I took this recipe from Taste Of

2, tblspn Annatto oil, (see below) Red onion, red bell pepper, 3 cloves garlic, 1 tomato, 1 cup dry white wine, 1.5 cups beer, 1 tspn tomato paste

Chicken thighs...

Marinate the thighs in :

1 tspn oregano
1 tspn cumin
1/2 white pepper (I used black)
1 tspn red wine vinegar

On the Annatto oil, I used achiote chile powder which I think is actually the same pepper. Dry it looks red, but it acutally turns the dish yellow, which is what the recipe said would happen. I whisked about a tblspn into about 1/2 a cup of olive oil.

This dish is practically idiot proof.

bon apetit!
