Zarela's Creamy Rice

Aarón Sánchez tells us the secret recipe to his favorite childhood traditional Mexican dish, made by his mom

"I love cooking my mom’s creamy rice. It’s a rice casserole loaded with cheese, roasted poblano peppers, corn, and you bake it. It’s so decadent, cheesy, and fatty. Definitely a comfort food."
