-2 cans 15 oz of Glandules (Green Pigeon Peas) I buy the GOYA brand
-3 cups white-long grain rice (I buy Mahatma brand of rice)
-3 ½ cups water
-2 packets "Sazon Goya Achiote Con Culantro" (look in specialty section of Hispanic store I find it at "Vallarta" or any Cuban store)
-Salt to taste about 3 tsp.
-4 cloves garlic crushed and minced
-1 whole onion finely minced'
-2 medium roma tomatos minced into small cubes
-½ Green Bell Pepper and ½ red Bell Pepper minced or 1 whole of any color.
-1 bunch of cilantro minced
-Extra-Virgin Olive Oil to sautee
(1)Wash rice until water runs clear. Put in rice cooker along with 2 Goya Sazon Packets, and 2 Cans of "Gandules" with their liquid and add 3 ½ cups of water and salt to taste, it should be a little salty because rice will absorb most of the salt and rice is bland anyways.
