  • How to make central/south american "arroz con pollo" Jimmy Hoffa

    In Belize, Peru, and the Dominican Republic I absolutely loved the perfectly moist and delicious arroz con pollo. Always flavorful and simple, it was my fall back anywhere I was anytime I was too tired to try something new.

    Can anybody here share with me the way to make this simple delicious style, my wife knows how to make it with a tomato base mexican style the way she grew up with it, but as we've had it without the tomato base she's not sure what to do to get that same moist light delicious flavor.

    We searched for recipes, but all of them were the mexican tomato base kind. Please help anyone who has had this same dish I'm referring to.

    To be more specific, I'm looking for the various types of ingredients used for flavoring this dish around central/south America, not a specific recipe. I am rather interested to the variety of ways this dish is seasoned when made without a tomato base.

  • Use Chicken Broth for about 1/2 of the water needed for the rice, and then use a can of beer for the rest. This will give it a great flavor for the recipe.

  • I used to make the best brownies, all the time. They came out perfectly without any effort. Duncan Hines, Hershey's, Betty Crocker-- all out of the box, all simple, all delicious. But lately (without me making any perceptible change to my strategy) things have taken a turn for the worse. I bake them for 40+ minutes, they're not done. 8x8 glass tray as always, but the middle is still doughy and moist. Not in the good way, more in the play-doh way. I bake them for 90+ minutes, they're still not done. But the outer edges bake normally, so they end up too crispy to be good, although somehow

  • My mother is confounded by whipping-cream. Some 20 years ago she started making cream-puffs which quickly became her pastry calling card. They always came out great and were always a hit. Some 15 years later, she cannot seem to make whipped-cream anymore. She still uses the same bowl, same mixer, same whipping-cream (Nutriwhip whipping-cream) and does everything the same way as she used... made me try by hand once!) She has tried a different brands of cream (35% Beatrice and Lactancia whipping-creams), but gets the same results. One time, I tried adding the powdered sugar after whipping

  • Mexican Cheese Sauce? jerhinesmith

    There's a Mexican restaurant in my hometown that serves (their term) 'Arroz con pollo'. The dish itself seems incredibly simple -- it's pretty much just rice, chicken, and an incredible cheese sauce. I've spent countless hours on google looking for a recipe for something resembling this sauce, but there doesn't seem to be one definitive version of arroz con pollo, so I haven't had much luck. Can someone point me in the right direction?

  • I'm a novice cook, but was intrigued by Megan McArdle's simple-enough-even-for-me recipe for frozen artichoke hearts: I'm also an enormous fan of frozen artichoke hearts, which when roasted at 500 degrees with a little spritz of olive oil and a sprinkling of sea salt, make a delicious, inexpensive, low calorie and high fiber dinner or side dish. We always have them in our freezer, and after... in Washington, DC, and I tend to get discouraged by the task of cutting down twelve artichokes to extract the heart. OK, I have all the ingredients, but a question remains: how long should I bake

I tend to order the "plain" pizza, which is just sauce. It's that kind of pizza where the sauce is thick and excessive, dolloped all over on an equally thick bread, but it's extremely good sauce. That's the style. The problem is that after eating it, I get heartburn for hours. It's bizarre, and I would

In fact, I find that salting the water quite generously works very well as long as I am... speculated--rather, the starch emulsifies the fats into the sauce (consider if I have, say, tomato sauce, cheese, and olive oil) and it also adds a rich mouthfeel.
