Yellow rice, or arroz amarillo in Spanish, is a culinary staple in nearly every Latin American culture. It is commonly served as a simple side dish or, more famously, simmered with chicken and other ingredients to create arroz con pollo. This savory side dish boasts an exciting blend of flavors that includes turmeric, onion and red pepper.
