Yellow rice..

Again, I am not talkin about minute rice! This is my version of Puerto Rican arroz amarillo.

Yellow Rice

  • 6 c. water
  • 3 c. medium grain rice
  • 4 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 packet Sazón
  • 2 tsp. recaito
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3-4 circles of adobo
  • dash of pepper
  • add-ins: ham, denver mix, gandules (little green peas), bacon pieces, beans, etc.

Serves 6

In a large pot add water and all seasonin. If you are using add-ins you would want to saute the meat or veggies first with the oil called for, you can add the beans in with the seasons. Let the water come to a boil over med high heat. Before the water is boilin you would want to taste the seasoned water to make sure it is to your liking. Once the water is boilin add the oil and stir to break up the oil. Slowly add the rice while stirrin. It is very important that you stir the rice very thorough or you will have tie dyed rice lol tho it will taste good, it’s not the look were goin for. Bring the water and rice back to a boil, stir one more time just to make sure there isn’t any clumpin of rice. Cover the pot and lower the heat to low on a larger burner and med low on a small burner. If you lid doesn’t fit tightly, cover the pot with a layer of aluminum foil before you put the lid on. DO NOT touch the lid for at least 45 mins! When that time has passed, turn off the heat and use a fork to fluff the rice, cover and let sit another 5-10 mins. Enjoy!
