    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pour olive oil in a cast iron/aluminum pot until hot.
    2. 2
      Bring the temp up to med-high and pour in water, bullion, tomato sauce, sofrito, adobo, and sazon until it comes to a boil.
    3. 3
      Pour in pigeon peas (gandules) and let boil for a minute.
    4. 4
      Pour in rice.
    5. 5
      Stir ONCE and put the lid on it, sealing tightly.
    6. 6
      Let sit for 20 minutes on low-medium.
    7. 7
      If the rice looks gummy DO NOT STIR IT, just put the lid back on and wait until the rice is firm (ready).
    8. 8
      If you desire the crunchiness on the bottom, once the rice is done cooking, put the temp on very low temp and let it sit for about 5 minutes. The bottom will loosen up from the moisture (since it it's done cooking).

      This was very good. The recipe is almost exactly like mine except I use half sofrito and half recaito...and I add a couple of bay leaves and some olives. I really enjoyed trying someone else's version of the dish.
