Latin Fried Rice With Del Real.

Del Real  is having a cooking contest for bloggers and asked Eating Around So Cal to participate. Using Del Real products we had to come up with a unique dish...so here it is Latin fried rice. Del Real rice already comes seasoned and full of veggies so it made the perfect base to transform it into a easy delicious fusion dish. 


1 package of Del Real  Arroz Mexican rice. 
1 package of Del Real Chipotle Chicken Tinga 
2/3 cup of Del Real Salsa Roja (the heat is not much but you can use salsa verde)
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs (additional eggs for each portion if you want to do fried eggs on top)
1/2 cup of diced scallions 
1/4 cup cilantro to garnish. 
5 cloves diced garlic. (adjust to your preferences)
Salt to taste


Heat a large (preferably cast iron) pan/wok over high heat. Pour in oil, then stir in diced garlic; cook until garlic starts to change color. While waiting for garlic mix all the rice together with the two eggs after they have been beaten well (I would salt the eggs before adding to rice) . Stir in the rice let it sit for a few minutes. When rice looks like its getting some crispness and color stir. Prepare your Chipotle Chicken Tinga by dicing it. Add the chicken and the salsa to the pan. Heat through. When that happens add your scallions and cilantro (and the fried egg is you are so inclined). Serve and enjoy!
