Arroz Con Coco

There are lots and lots of Hispanic type foods. What’s your favorite Hispanic type food? Mines is the famous “arroz con coco”. A lot of people love that dish. Now let me tell you why I love it so much. Before I start explaining my reasons, I bet your thinking… What the heck is “arroz con coco”? Well basically it is just “rice with coconut”. Yes, coconut weird combination I know. But I’m used to it; I’ve been eating it since I was like born. I guess that’s why I love it so much. My grandma makes it the best. To me no one can do it as good as she does. Arroz con coco is just made up of two cups of coconut milk (either fresh or canned), two cups of long-grain rice, one teaspoon of salt, five ounces of Panela or… just eight tbsp. of raw cane sugar, four cups of water and finally 1/3 cup of raisins(optional). All that make up a being plate of deliciousness. Off the Caribbean coast, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, and Puerto Rico. Arroz con coco is a typical side dish for fries. But make it a little different. It is also served in places like Thailand and southern regions of India. But of course every country does it there own special way. In my family they cook arroz con coco every gathering, every holiday, occasion, everything. And everybody loves it. You should try it someday, if not your going to miss out on a lot .
