One Pot Empanada Rice

One Pot Empanada Rice

This cheesy one pot empanada rice takes all of my favorite components from classic Puerto Rican empanadas and makes them gluten free!



Optional Garnish:


  1. In a large saucepan, brown the ground beef with the diced onion, breaking up the meat with a spatula. Once the beef is browned, add minced garlic cloves and hot pepper.
  2. Add oregano, salt, pepper, tomato sauce, broth, olives, and rice. Bring to a boil, then cover, and lower to a simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Garnish with cheese (optional) and cilantro!
