In a large pot on stove top, combine all ingredients except the Gandules, water and rice. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 6 minutes.

Add water to mixture and bring to a rolling boil.
Add rice and gandules to the boiling mixture and continue to boil until the water evaporates to the top level of the rice mixture.

Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for about 20-25 minutes until all liquid has evaporated and rice is cooked. Resist the urge to lift the lid until rice is cooked!

Personal Notes:
This is a staple traditional dish in Puerto Rican households. My mother prepared it for special occasions and served it with "Platanos Maduros", (fried sweet plantain slices). Yum! A Colmenares family favorite! Enjoy!
