Arroz Con Gandules

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by mandabears

This is a direct copy of the recipe on the can of Goya Green Pigeon Peas aka Gandules Verde and it is so delicious!! I usually use 1/2 cup of the ham because it is slightly healthier, but have also used smoked turkey breast.

This was really good and easy too! I used chicken broth and annatto oil instead of the bacon and water for flavor.
