After so much trial and error I gave up trying to make this recipe just like Gma's. This is the one I use. I try to keep it as "low-fat" possible by not adding bacon or sausage like other recipes call for.

Great dish! I worked with a gal that used to make a mean dish of Arroz Con Gandules. That reminds me...I love retirement. I threw in a handful of green olives.
