Tío Efra’s Arroz con Cebolla


As mentioned in a previous post, I lost my uncle this past year. He was one of the pillars in our family. He, like my mom, were always the ones who hosted family events, reunions, and holidays. This recipe, which literally translates as “Rice with onions” can be a pain to make, but my uncle, resourceful as always, used some shortcuts (mainly French onion soup) to make this delicious, side dish. My mom, added bacon (because everything is better with bacon, obviously) to add some texture.

In all, this is a super easy and hassle free side dish, that you can make to switch things around. It’s also great when the grocery store has a sale on bacon and you end up buying 3 packs (like I did last weekend!) Here’s my Tio Efra’s Arroz con cebolla.

Serves 4
Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 20-30 (depends on how many slices of bacon you use)
