Arroz con Pollo is what’s on the menu, and dinner is about to get interesting.
With its bold flavors and colorful palette, Arroz con Pollo is a popular dish among Spanish-speaking nations, and each country has its own edition of this traditional dish.
Arroz con Pollo has been around as early as the 8th century, and was introduced into Spain’s culture by the Moors, during their invasion in 711 AD.
It appears that Arroz con Pollo was first created by the Moors, due to their very communal cuisine culture. Their favorite dish to pass around the table was Arroz con Pollo, which was prepared in a giant pot, and cooked family style. This version of the popular dish was seasoned with flavorful spices like coriander, cumin and saffron. These herbs are also traditionally found in many of the dishes Moors created throughout their unique cuisine history.
Arroz con Pollo is now a favorite in many Spanish-speaking nations, including Cuba, Puerto Rico and Columbia. It has also become a very popular dish in the United States as well.
The chefs at BistroMD have taken the traditional flavors of Arroz con Pollo, and created a dish just for you that is both healthy and delicious.
Our Arroz con Pollo is made with the most lean and tender white meat chicken, simmered in a mix of traditional spices, and cooked with a blend of Latin-style tomatoes.
Our chefs then season this dish with torn cilantro, and serve it over a bed of colorful and traditional yellow rice.

BistroMD’s Picadillo with Plantains
Say goodbye to the banana as you know it and say “hello” to BistroMD's wonderful Picadillo with Plantain recipe!
Straight from Central America right to your dinner plate, our picadillo will have your taste buds dancing with a wide array of bold spices and cultural flavors!
Picadillo is a traditional meat dish that has been around for centuries. Many Latin-American cultures, as well as the Dominican Republic and the Philippines, have passed on picadillo recipes for thousands of years. Picadillo is probably most popular in Latin-American countries. Here, many of its citizens use picadillo as a good source of meat, which is generally made up of ground beef, with various combinations of bold spices. These spices include cumin, oregano, garlic, peppers, and red onions, which vary from culture to culture. Certain cultures even use picadillo as a stuffing.
Instead of using the traditional ground beef, our chefs use lean ground turkey to make our picadillo. The lean turkey is combined with finely chopped tomatoes, fresh garlic and onions, with bold regional spices that give the lean turkey just the right punch of spicy, but satisfying flavor.
Our Picadillo with Plantain dinner is sure to put a new perception on the way you look at the banana. Plantains are a larger, firmer variety in the banana family and they are known in many Latin American countries as the “cooking banana.”
Plantains are a fun, flavorful side dish, and they are used by many different cultures to create a variety of flavorful creations. Plantains are used most prominently in countries like Trinidad and Tobago, Honduras, and Jamaica. In fact, they use the plantain like we use the potato in the United States. What makes plantains special is that they can be cooked at any stage of ripeness. In some of these countries, plantains are also ground up and made into flour so they can be used to cook other foods.
Today, plantains are fried, eaten raw, or even eaten as crisp and tasty chips. It is a bountiful fruit that keeps on giving us a variety of different ways to eat it. With plantains, the possibility of recipes is virtually endless!
To perfectly complement the boldness of our picadillo, our plantains are slightly sweetened by our chefs. To finish off the dish, our chef garnishes both the picadillo and plantains with petite green peas and raisins. The combination of the bold spices in the picadillo, with the sweet, subtle flavors of the plantains is sure to give you a healthy, great-tasting dinner of international delights!
