I love Aaron Sanchez. He is one of my favorite TV chefs. He runs a number of restaurants. The one he runs with his mother is called Zarela's, his mother's first name. He was on a show called, "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" with his mother. His choice was Zarela's creamy, cheesy rice dish. This is what Zarela wrote after the show. I am posting it here so I don't lose the recipe.
"I was just on the Food Network show The Best Thing I Ever Ate with my son, chef and Food Network star, Aaron Sanchez and within minutes viewers were going to my web site www.zarela.com, signing up for updates and writing me to share the recipe. Thank you very much for your interest and I hope you enjoy our famous creamy rice casserole.
This is a superior party dish that can be easily pre-assembled and reheated just prior to serving. This is why it is high on the list of all caterers in Northern Mexico, myself included. What makes it a favorite of all eaters is that it has layers of flavors - creamy and hot, crunchy corn kernels, and the cilantro adds a refreshing after-taste."
