Arroz con Maiz is a delicious dish that is the perfect side. This Latin-style corn with rice is easy to make and pairs with many dishes. To make the Arroz con Maiz, onions, bell peppers, and garlic are sautéed in oil, then corn is added. Next, the rice is added and cooked until its lightly toasted. We added vegetable stock instead of water to give the Arroz con Maiz additional flavor, then cooked it until it was firm but tender, and finished it off with fresh cilantro and lime wedges. Serve Arroz con Maiz with your favorite vegan or gluten-free dishes such as our Vegan Tacos or Fiesta Chicken, and you will have a delicious dinner that receives a round of applause.

Add the long-grain rice and cook it for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add the vegetable broth to the Arroz con Maiz, turn the heat down to medium-low, and cook it for 5-8 minutes, often stirring to keep the Arroz con Maiz from sticking to the bottom of the pot until most of the water evaporates. Cover the Arroz con Maiz and cook it for an additional 10 minutes.
