This will fill you up quite nicely. I’ve eaten this same style of meal my entire life and I still love it.
Peel and slice Yuca into 2 inch disks then boil for an hour
Roasted Chicken Thigh
4 chicken thighs roasted in a pyrex 9×9 dish at 275F for 2 hours and covered with aluminum foil
Season with a little salt and pepper
2 slices of ham, diced
1/4 onion, diced
1 can black beans, drained
1 can yellow corn, do not drain
1 tomato, diced
1/4 bunch of cilantro, diced
salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups white rice
Saute the ham and onions for 3-4 minutes then add the black beans, corn, tomato, cilantro, a dash of salt and pepper, and the rice. Add a cup of water then cook uncovered for about 5 minutes on high heat. I took a picture so you can see the point at which you need to cover the pan, it’s when the water level meets the top part of all the mixed ingredients. Too much water when you cover equals soggy rice, too little water equals very dry rice. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook for 15-20 minutes.
1 plantain cut about an inch thick
Deep fry the plantain for 3 minutes, remove from deep fryer then smash flat. Place plantain back in the deep fryer for 5 minutes then remove, let rest, and serve.
Get ready for leftovers!!!!
