I love Cuban food, and delight in trying my hand at making Cuban sandwiches. This rice dish sounds excellent and I can't wait to make some of this up when I next get a craving for some Cuban food. I think it would go nicely with a Cuban sandwich. It also would be good with some diced ham or steak mixed in as well.
