Arroz con Salchichas Recipe 🌴
If you are from the Caribbean or grew up in Puerto Rico, you’ve had arroz con salchichas. This is a must if you are from there, so if you visit make sure to try it.
With my version, my husband says that I elevated the dish. I love this dish and we eat it very often, but the ingredients that you would normally use to make it may not seem that great.
I realized this when we started eating healthier due to dietary issues all of us were having. We had to start eating more organic foods and non-processed foods. Doing that helped us a lot, but I didn’t wanna give up the foods that I had grown up eating.
I switched some of the ingredients to make it healthier for my family. That‘s when my version of arroz con salchichas was born!
