How to Make Arroz con Grandules (Rice and Pigeon Peas)

  2. Drain sofrito to the pot and add 1 cup of water.
  3. Add grandules and bring to a boil.
  4. Wash rice, add to the pot and stir. (Taste liquid, if more salt, etc is needed add it now)
  5. Boil for about 10 minutes, or until the liquid on top forms little holes.
