Arroz con salchichas (aka yellow rice with sausages) is an easy and delicious one-pot meal that comes together in just 30 minutes. This Puerto Rican version is made with sofrito, pimento olives, and vienna sausage. 




  1. Brown the sausages. Heat the achiote oil in a pan over medium heat before adding sliced sausages. Sauté until golden brown on both sides. sausages and sofrito in a pot
