Chinese New Year calls for a variety of the most delicious Chinese dishes, and that gets me thinking about a Cuban version of fried rice known as arroz frito. This recipe has deep roots in my home growing up, as well as in Cuba’s history.

Among the various colors, creeds and ethnic backgrounds on this Caribbean island is an unmistakable Asian influence. Havana has one of the oldest and largest Chinatowns in Latin America. This dish blends together the two cultures deliciously, and I grew up eating it all the time.

My favorite part of making it is that I get to use up my leftover rice, and add leftover pork, steak or chicken. Everything comes together when sprinkled with some fresh squeezed lime juice.
