    javagirl81's Note:

    If you like to eat a variety of rice dishes, add this one to your menu!I once ate a rice that was similar to this one, but I wasn't able to get the recipe.I've created this as my own version of that rice, which can be served as a quicker alternative to "arroz con gandules", which happens to be my favorite!This dish is super quick, and super yummy! Enjoy!
