We usually dont measure our stuff out. Most puerto rican chef's cook from memory, adding ingredients until we get the taste we prefer. I tried to get this as close as I possibly could. Enjoy! Por lo general dont medida de nuestras cosas. La mayor parte de Puerto Rico del chef cocción de la memoria, añadiendo ingredientes hasta obtener el sabor que prefiera. Traté de hacer esta tan cerca como yo podía. Disfrutar!

A common traditional Puerto Rican staple, this is always served as one of the dishes in any Hispanic Caribbean gathering that includes a meal in the USA. Some stewed chicken can be added to be Arroz con Pollo y Gandules.
