Papi's Cuban Arroz Con Leche

When I think back to my childhood there's a few things that always stick out to me: my parents’ cooking, Noche Buena and shopping with my mom at Sedano’s to buy groceries for the holiday feast. It’s a not so well kept secret that my dad was the real cook at home. He was a chef at a hotel in Havana, Cuba and although she won't admit it, he’s the one that taught my mom how to cook. So all of my mother’s recipes are really my dad’s, but he never complained and always let her take all of the credit. That’s a great husband, if you ask me.

Mami's Cuban-ish Congri Recipe!

Noche Buena is almost here and the older I get, the more I realize I need to start learning my mom's recipes so I can someday pass them onto my son. So you can get used to more of my family's recipes posted onto my blog. The recipe I'll be sharing today is my mom's Cuban-ish Congri recipe, also known as Moros y Cristianos or Arroz Moro. It's called "Cuban-ish" because of the addition of bacon, because everything is better with bacon.
