I’ve been chided by the traditionalist on the site for my love of Minute Rice and how I use it to make meals in minutes. I have to admit, I love the taste of this 5-minute white rice and bean recipe.

Minute rice is convenient and quick, I can use it to make my favorite Latin dishes. I recently used Minute rice to make Arroz con Gandules in 15 minutes. It’s a dish that typically takes more than an hour when you factor in the ingredients and cooking the rice.

That brings me to my point, I have another really fast Hispanic recipe using Minute Rice! This is a quick Cuban recipe that will take a max of 5 minutes.
