Rice and Ribs/ Arroz con Costillas. Left Over Make Over

Jump to recipe

Oh, I just love taking left overs and make a completely different meal with them. This recipe is inspired by one of my favorite childhood meals “Arroz con Costillas” my aunts would make this dish for Saturday’s lunch and I still remember sitting on my Grandfather’s patio surrounded by my big family and having the best time.

Even when this dish is originally made with rib tips I wanted to give my left over smoked ribs a try. They turned out so good! The ribs infused the rice with a smoky flavor, the bell peppers added the perfect touch of sweetness and the cilantro a fresh finished. I was really proud of this dish. Thank you, food related-childhood memories.

Left overs are so fun you guys! don’t think about them as boring or predictable and don’t be afraid to get creative. It will be worth it!

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
