LOL, there's only a sprinkling of fries inside the dish. We actually make it with high-fiber pasta instead of rice.

Ever hear of Lomo Saltado, a Peruvian dish?






I have to admit that when a waiter recommended this dish, I was less than enthused. However, I really like the taste of it.

That's it. Except, of course, I used chicken, Saltado de Pollo. (Also, I used jalapeno in the ingredients for the sauce, Aji sauce. I think it's traditionally made with the Aji pepper, a yellow pepper.)

My boyfriend introduced me to this. I loved it. Of course, then the restaurant we got it at closed. Anyway, now we make our own.

I don't like rice, except for sushi rice, and I don't like fries unless they are very hot and crispy on the outside.

In England, we only ate rice as a dessert - I never got used to savory rice. I'm not sure why I don't like fries in sandwiches or dishes - too stodgy maybe?

How 'bout this Cajun dish...
  • fresh sweet corn
  • unsalted butter
  • onion
  • green bell pepper
  • red bell pepper
  • celery
  • tomatoes
  • salt
  • cayenne pepper
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • sugar
  • evaporated milk

Shouldn't that be "we only ate rice as a pudding"? They don't use the term "dessert" in England.
