The way that I do the food for Cinco de Mayo is rice and beans, using some top rated rice cookers. Here are the recipes for rice and beans;
Ingredient’s are: 1 fresh tomato, 3 cups of rice (long grain rice), half of onion, 1 tablespoon of oil, 1 clove of garlic, 1 tablespoon or cube of caldo de pollo, and 1 tablespoon of salt.
First: boil the tomato in the pan. Get the blender ready with that piece of onion. When the tomato is ready put it in the blender with the onion. Blended for about 2 min until its all in a form of liquid.
Second: Put the rice a drainer and clean it for about 10 seconds. Then put in that same pan ( before putting the oil let the saucepan get dry first) then put the oil in and the rice. Wait about 20 min until the rice is nice a golden brown ( caution it needs to be stir frequently so the rice don’t burn). When done dry up the oil in the pan.
Third: Put the sauce that was made from tomato in the pan of rice.
Fourth: When it is boiling put in the garlic or cube of garlic with the cube of caldo of pollo and the tablespoon of salt.
Last part is that when it is dry put in a cup of water in the pan so that the rice could be nice and soft then turn down the heat and cover the rice. Let it heat up for about 30 mins or more.
