Arroz Con Gandules

Arroz Con Gandules created by melissafrnndz

This recipe is MSG free (No Sazon or Bouillon) and it is delicious. Serve with any meat, avocado and salad. I got this recipe from my Dominican Mama, Tata. The ultimate secret to good rice is the pot. Use an heavy aluminum caldero. Sold in most discount stores in the pot section.

    This recipe could be 5 star if it didn't call for so much water. I think it needs only 3 cups in order to be fluffy. I used 4 and it came out very mushy. The flavor is great, just like my Dominican Mother-in-Law's. The only difference I did was blend the onion, peppers, garlic and cilantro and added it to simmer before adding the gandules. Thie recipe will be a keeper in this house.
