Almost every region in Spain has its own traditional rice recipe, and Arros de matances is Ibiza's take on the grain.

Although nowadays it can be found in most of the restaurants serving traditional Ibiza cuisine, Arros de matances was typically only made on "matanza" day, when pigs were slaughtered.

The main ingredients are pork and squid, mixed with tomatoes, peppers, garlic, onion, olive oil, saffron and, of course, rice cooked "caldoso" style with excess water resulting in a delicious soupy dish.
