Puerto Rican Rice and Beans


This was an exceptional dish. Much more complex flavor than traditional Mexican rice and beans. I made the sofrito and the aroma when it was cooking was fantastic. You have to make this dish often.  I served it with a spicy grilled chicken breast.

A few years ago, I met a very dear friend of mine through work. She and her family are from Puerto Rico and of course, have some very lovely food traditions. As a tribute to our friendship, I prepared some sofrito earlier this week and now  I will be using it in a lovely rice and beans dish. With it’s beautifully complex flavors, this rice and bean dish is perfect for eating on it’s own or as a side to any Latin inspired meal. Enjoy!
