El Amor Que Sabor Latino

Our son, Gustavo, was born in Ecuador. We had the very great joy of adopting him when he was just a year old. He is the love & pride of our lifes. We love the cuisine from the Latin American countries we've visited (or hope to visit!), as well.

This is among my many spanish favorites for its' flavor, simplicity, and minimal ingredients. If you have a pressure cooker handy, it'll cook in less than 20 minutes, give or take depending on desired consistency. It goes perfectly with rice or simply vegetables, if you choose. Either way, it will be one of your favorites also.
