Arroz Amarillo (Yellow Rice)
Makes 6 servings
2 cups raw long grain white rice
4 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon saffron, or turmeric or bijol whatever is available
In a large-size saucepan over low heat pour in 8 ounces of Tonita’s Cuban Sauce (MILD). Add 1/4 chopped pimientos (optional). Raise the heat to high; add the rice, water, salt, and saffron, and cook, uncovered, over high heat 15 minutes, until it comes to a boil.
Lower heat and cover and let the rice simmer. When the water has been absorbed and small lumps appear on top, about 10-15 minutes cook until the rice is dry and fluffy.
Arroz Amarillo goes great with these other awesome dishes with Tonita’s Sweet Vine Cuban Sauce:

Dipping Sauce using Tonita’s Cuban Sauce Fresh from the Jar… Use my Cuban Sauce to dip with or squirt on some of the following foods. It will have you politely licking your fingers.
Fried Fish Fillets, snapper, catfish etc. and shoestring fries, squirt on top instead of hot sauce or ketchup
Cream Cheese or Guacamole Boat Dip with tortilla chips around the platter. Place Cuban Sauce in the center of soft cream cheese or guacamole and go for it… Yummy!
Fried Ripe Plantains are my favorite food to dip into Tonita’s Sweet Cuban Sauce!
