To start the base of the rice you will want to heat 2 tablespoons of oil to a large pot and add in 1/4 cup sliced chorizo. Since I don’t eat chorizo, I added cut up pieces of turkey sausage. You can also add bacon, or omit the meat all together.
Once the meat is fried lightly, pour in half of the blended sofrito and stir in.
After the sofrito is added to the meat, pour in 2 cups of white long grained rice and 2 cups of water.
Stir lightly and bring to a boil.
Once the ingredients start to boil add in a small can of tomato sauce, one can of gandule beans, and 1/4 bottle green olives.
Stir lightly to mix ingredients. Cover pot with a lid and turn down heat to a simmer.
Simmer for around 30-45 minutes. Until rice is tender
