While living with our Senora, we ate all kinds of crazy comida espanola. We usually didn't eat until 11 or 12 at night so by then they all tasted at least decent because I was starving! There were a few dishes she made that stuck with me and are still some of my favorites. Although she refused to divulge any recipes or let me step foot in the kitchen, the basics I could figure out.
You will need: (serves two people)
1 large onion
5 cloves of garlic
2 cups water
1 cup rice
1/2 teaspoon salt
~Dice your onion and add it to the pan.
~While the onion is sautéing, coarsely chop up your garlic. When the onions are about 75 percent browned, add in the garlic. You do not want to overcook the garlic or it will begin to taste sour.
~When everything is browned up and smelling delicious put in 2 cups water and bring to a boil.
~Stir in rice and salt. Cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes.
~When the rice is nearly done heat some more olive oil in a fry pan. Fry 1-2 eggs per plate depending on how hungry you are.
-Plate the rice spreading it on the whole plate. Zigzag a layer of catsup over the top. Put the fried eggs on it all and Buen Provecho!
~My husband chopped up some anaheim peppers from the garden and sprinkled them on the top. Follow his lead if that tickles your fancy.
