  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (peanut, soy or corn)
  • 1 lb Dominican salami [0.45 kg - See notes] (Amazon affiliate)
  • 1/4 cup cubanelle (cubanela) peppers, chopped
  • 1 pinch oregano
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1/3 cup of chopped celery (optional)
  • 1/3 cup of diced carrot (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of pitted olives (optional)
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 1 cup of diced auyama (West Indian pumpkin or kabocha squash
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro or parsley , finely chopped
  • 1 cup of tomato sauce
  • 6 cups of water
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 4 cups rice


  • Cut the salami into cubes. Heat oil over high heat in a large deep bottomed pot. Add salami or sausage and brown.
  • Add cubanela peppers, oregano, garlic, celery, carrot, olives, pepper, auyama and cilantro, cook and stir for a minute. Stir in tomato sauce followed by water. Decrease heat to medium and bring to a boil.
  • Add the rice and salt and stir often to avoid excessive sticking. Once all the water has evaporated, cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer over very low heat. Wait 15 minutes, uncover and stir. Cover and wait another 5 minutes.
  • Taste rice for "doneness"; it should be firm but tender inside. If necessary, cover and simmer another 5 minutes over very low heat.
