    I love your site! All of my parents cooking in easy understandable and delicious recipes. Just made this and it came out super delicious just like home. :-)

    Is it right to evaporate all the liquid, then simmer it for an additional 15 minutes? Won’t it burn? Steps 8-10 seem mixed up. Let me know what I’m missing, Thanks.

      No, the recipe is correct, and that’s how we Dominicans have been cooking our rice for like hundreds of years. :)

      Notice it says to simmer over very low heat, and covered. If you do it this way it will not burn.

    Dear Tia Clara,

    Since I know you are into making your recipes healthier, I wanted to ask you if you think it would be possible to experiment with this recipe by adding brown rice instead of regular whilte rice? Have you tried to do this before with this or other locrio recipes? and if so, what was the end result like?
    Thank you! =)

    This dish may be a humble one, but add some avocados, some tostones and cold beer and a few bachatas, and gather the compadres to play dominoes…

    Do you use the larger oval cans or the smaller rectangular ones?
