Got this off another forum and it is really good. It makes 4-6 servings and is 1-pot, everything goes in all at once so quite easy -

1.33 cup basmati or jasmine rice (well rinsed)

2.66 cups water

3-4 tbsp Sofrito seasoning by Goya (in international or Spanish food section of market)

1 can of red beans (well rinsed)

Optional: 4-6 hot links (I used Johnsonville), slice lengthwise then slice into pieces

1 tbsp olive oil


Add everything to large saucepan, stir thoroughly to mix, set burner to high, and as it begins to warm continue to stir so rice does not stick to pan. Once oil warms it won't. When it boils, reduce heat to lowest setting and cover. Set timer for ~16 minutes and for first few watch that it does not boil over. When timer goes off check rice to see if fully cooked, if not recover and check again until it is. Fluff w/ fork & serve.

Start to finish about 25 minutes.

I've made it 10+ times since I got the recipe, it came out great first time. Goes great with fresh green veggies.

The only mod I made was how I rinsed the rice. The recipe called for changing the water until it is clear. The first time I did that it was 8-10X! Now I just dump the rice in a strainer and hit it with the sink sprayer until it looks mostly clear running off. You have to rinse the rice though, The one time I didn't it was a big clump in the pan and did not separate, glued together.

Also, recipe scales up or down directly, 1 cup rice to 2 cups, 1/2 cup to 1 cup, adjust other ingredients accordingly.

Edit: Do report back when you make it.
