This is a dish that we have here alot at parties. You can never go to a party with seeing this on the menu. My step grandfather is from the Philippines & my grandmother made this almost always for him. We grew up on this. Grandma always had a fresh made pot on the stove & fresh cooked "Hento" rice aka Spanish Rice ready to go. Tonight for dinner my sister Nanette made her way of the recipe. It not only looked good but smelled & tastedd good.
