Unfortunately most people associate Caribbean food with what they eat at all inclusive resorts and Taco Bell. You need to get off the resorts and eat at small establishments at the side of the road in order to get the REAL STUFF!!
I had a variation of this rice when I visited Miami a few years back...it was at an authentic Cuban restaurant...where they only made home cooked Cuban meals. I had the BEST Cuban sandwich and this rice. This is my attempt at re-creating it...and I am pretty sure I have nailed it! I just need to get my Cuban aunt to try it to see what she thinks!
