What is your favorite hot dish to make in the summer?

I love to make rice and beans because it doesn't use the oven! I hate using the oven in the heat. Plus it's a dish I can leave for 45 mins while I play or fold laundry. I also love arrozo con pollo for this reason :)

I dont really do anything different in the summer because its summer all year long here. I dont notice "heat" because I am sitting in the A/C! haha

We have less soups/chilis in the summer and grill more.  Other than that, not much of a difference.

Can you tell me how you do your rice and beans? I used to eat them all the time when I worked in central America but I've never been able to replicate how good they were. Maybe it was the location. :)

If I don't grill then I use my crock pot. Even though we have the air on I don't want to heat up the place by cooking every day.
