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.
