How to make it

  • For "chicken" get a pot and fill it half way of water and put in the rest of the chicken ingredients..put on high heat for a boil to cook chicken thoroughly!!!!
  • In a blender or food processor put all the ingredients under the *SOFRITO* list,I never measure so as far as the powder seasoning Im going to say a 2 second shake(1/2-1 Tb)???u should come up with a very green runny consistency.
  • Ok in a large thick metal pot (this is important or u will get burnt rice at the bottom of the pot,which i love,but some dont like it)fill your pot with the oil,water,tomato sauce,ur Sazon packets,and the SOFRITO u had jus blended up,Bring all to a boil...
  • MmMm Its smelling great once its at a boil,put ur rice inside (and ur green olives and bacon if u like)do a quick stir to make sure its all in there.
  • Then COVER ur pot and turn ur high heat down to a medium low heat
  • In a medium sauce pan empty ur can of red Kidney beans,using same can fill lil less or more (depends how much juice u like) with water, stir and pour water in sauce pan
  • throw the rest of the "bean" ingredients inside sauce pan
  • bring to boil
  • once its boiling,reduce to medium heat,cover if u like
  • With the yellow rice,you DONT want to stir to often,because then it will turn into a mushy mexican rice instead of a fluffy puerto rican rice.U dont want to stir more then maybe 3-4 times(takes about 25-30 minutes to fully cook)
  • When u stir make sure to scoop it away from the sides of the pot and flip the rice from the bottom to the top each stir...
  • U will know when ur rice is done,when it doesnt have any crunch its moist and just soft not mushy
  • Ur beans will be done when ur potatoes are done(normally 15-20 minutes,turn on low heat just to keep em warm if finishes before other components)
  • Ur chicken will be done when its not pink on the inside,haha
  • When everything is done to perfection,this is how u serve...
  • Get ur favorite plate,put a BIG spoonfull of ur yellow puerto rican rice down,pour ur beans over the bed of rice,and add a lil more of the extra juice (dont be scared haha) and then lay ur piece of chicken on the just made puerto rican rice and beans... one of the two kinds that I love <3

    I copied a recipe called Puerto Rica Rice from this website on 3/16/13 and I made it tonight for dinner. It was not good. It only called for 1 cup of water so the rice did not cook. I have always used 2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice and here you called for 2 cups of rice and only 1 cup of water. I wanted to add more water, but also wanted to follow the recipe.
    This would of been delicious had I added more water.
    Not happy with this site.

    best rice and beans ive ever had. The sofito was good but wasnt even necessary. The "beans" recipe was a sauce in itself. AWESOME!!!

    I was friends with a Puerto Rican family 12 years ago and loved dinner at their house! I've tried to learn how to make this dish....but never had a recipe. Finally tonight - this was PERFECT! Thank you so much for sharing....the smell of this cooking transported me back in time. Wow. Thanks!
