Arroz Con Gandules

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by JenniferK2

Authentic Puerto Rican rice - great side dish, or serve with Puerto Rican Beans and Rice and have as a main dish. When I serve it this way, I double the beans and top with shredded lettuce, tomato and avocado. You can substitute other meat for the sausage - ham, chicken or pork. Credit for this recipe goes to my good friend Michelle.

DELICIOUS! So easy and lots of flavor-everyone loved this dish! I used diced ham and included recaito. Thank you, JenniferK2, for a great recipe! Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, October 2008.
