This is one of my many favorite Puerto Rican dishes that I make. This is an inexpensive dish to make and feeds an army.
4 cups Goya medium grain rice
2 tbsp. oil
½ stick of salchichon (farmer’s sausage without pepper corns)
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 pk sazon
2 tsp. adobo
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
3 tbsp. safrito
Cut salchichon into bit size pieces and set aside
Add oil to pot and put heat on medium high heat. Let the oil heat up
Wash the rice until water runs clear or as clear as you can get it and set aside
Once oil is heated add the tomato sauce, sazon, adobo, garlic powder, onion powder, safrito and salchichon. Stir to combine and let simmer for about 3 to 4 minutes.
Add in the washed rice to pot and stir well.
Add in enough water to just cover the top of the rice.
Let this cook on medium high heat until the water has evaporated from the rice.
When water has evaporated, lower the heat down to low and cover with a lid. Stirring rice occasionally.
Let this cook for about 30 to 45 minutes or until rice is tender.
Serve with bean or just as is.
