Arroz con Maíz

  • 4 cups of jasmine rice
  • 2 tablespoons of adobo
  • 2 tablespoons of sofrito
  • 2 packets of sazón
  • 1 can of canned corn
  • 3.5 cups of water (or vegetable broth/stock if you have it)
  • A spash of garlic infused olive oil

How to make it:

  • In a Dutch oven, set to a medium high heat and drop the 2 tablespoons of sofritowith a splash of garlic infused olive oil. I use allspice garlic olive oil that I OBSESSED with. I think I need to just buy a bigger bottle of it
  • Once the sofrito defrosts (I freeze mine in cubes for better shelf life) add the sazón , adobo, and rice. I always like to toast muy rice so that it has more flavor.

  • Still in medium heat, add the water and corn and mix well.
  • Now, my mom taught me this trick (I believe that she found it online). I top the Dutch over with a kitchen towelette and put the lid on. I set the timer for 20 mins and forget it!
