Recipe by Krystal-Belle
This is a yellow rice dish that my husband "created" in his mind. Of course, I had to make the culinary magic happen, but at least he contributed! A very good rice dish that can be served on the side, or as the main course.
- 1 cup white rice
- 2 cups water
- sazon goya with coriander and annatto
- 1 smoked sausage or 1 kielbasa
- 1⁄2 cup frozen mixed vegetables
- 1 tablespoon oil or 1 tablespoon margarine
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1⁄4 cup onion, diced small
- 1⁄4 cup green pepper, diced small
Directions See How It's Made
- Cut kielbasa/smoked sausage into small cubes. After cutting, brown in a frying pan for about 2-3 minutes until the sausage is heated through and slightly browned. Place into a separate dish but leave the oil produced from the kielbasa in the pan. In the same pan that the sausage was removed from, cook onions and green peppers until soft.
- In a medium sized pot, put water, rice, oil, 1 packet of sazon, and salt together and bring to a boil. Once this begins to boil, turn it down to a low heat setting and simmer for about 20 minutes with the lid on, but tilted to release air.
- When water is almost completely absorbed into the rice, add vegetables and kielbasa (with the oil that the kielbasa produced). Stir and cover.
- Cook covered until rice is fluffy and tender, about another 5-10 minutes.
