Rice is hands down the most important grain in Puerto Rican cuisine. Most meals are served with a side of rice, whether it’s my mom’s arroz con pollo, this arroz con gandules, or arroz con salchichas. Rice can also be found served for dessert, in recipes like this arroz con leche (rice pudding with milk) or arroz con dulce (coconut rice pudding). You can also explore this turmeric basmati rice recipe for a super simple yet flavorful side dish.
