TIU Approved Arroz Con Pollo

By Katrina Scott on

Atlanta babes brought the HEAT yesterday!!!

We miss you already but we're so excited to meet our Tampa girls tomorrow and then off to Miami on Sunday! ☀️ We love Miami with its beautiful beaches, vibrant energy, and fun, welcoming vibe! Last time we were in Miami we had so much delicious food ~ the restaurants here are unbelievable! We’re still thinking about an arroz con pollo dish we tried! So to celebrate our Miami Tour stop, we’re sharing our TIU approved spin on the dish. The flavors are so good…and you know how much we love garlic and paprika! ;) Enjoy babe!
