Wow the response for the rice recipe was overwhelming! Since this was her family recipe. I thought it was only fair that I ask permission before posting it on my blog. I know many of you asked me personally to email it it you, but I thought posting it here would be easier. That way if you didn't ask me personally you would still have the opportunity to get the recipe! Here we go....
3 1/2 cups of long grain white rice (this can be adjusted to the size of your family and she recommends Goya Jasmine Rice)
1/3 cup Olive Oil
Sprinkle in Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Cumin (to your taste)
Cut up fresh Cilantro (the amount and use is completely optional)
2 packets of Sazon Goya (make sure it has Gehiote in it for color)
3 cups of stock from whatever type of meat you want to use example chicken, pork tenderloin (my fav) etc. Also use the meat in the rice to for flavor (the amount and use is optional)
1 can including stock of Green Pigeon Peas
3 tablespoons of Recaito
Cook on high until it reaches a boil then turn it to medium and cook for about 15min until rice is done and the stock used is gone.
Now, if you are like me a lot of the ingredients can seem a bit overwhelming since I don't make a lot of Spanish dishes, but you should be able to find most of the ingredients in the Spanish section at your local grocery store.
I hope the recipe is easy to understand please let me know if you have any questions! Oh, and let me know if you have tried the recipe too! Good Luck!!
