There’s a controversy whether the best Spanish Rice is moist or dry. This version is a favorite from the Baca family, wonderfully moist and delicious. This was Joseph Baca’s (founder of Bueno Foods) favorite dish.
Not so many years ago, children in New Mexico were sent to gather wild greens referred to as quelites found along river and ditch banks. Today, spinach is used in this traditional Lenten dish. A delicious combination of flavors.
New Mexico and Colorado are the origins of the word “calabacita.” It refers to zucchini or squash, both of which grow plentifully in these areas. It is no coincidence that a dish by the same name has been made in New Mexican homes for generations. These calabacitas have a twist in that broccoli is added to the mix thereby increasing nutritional density.
The perfect food eaten as a side dish or as the main meal with chile sauce.
