Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, and Cubans are big on this classic recipe. We vary a bit but the end result is very similar. These are usually served as a side along with rice, meat, or alone as a meat-free meal.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Prep Yellow Onion (1/2) , Red Bell Pepper (1/2) , and Green Bell Pepper (1/2) by chopping or slicing - you want about ¼ cup of each. For the size, it’s really all about your preference.
Step 2
In a medium saucepan, add the Corn Oil (2 Tbsp) and heat over medium heat.
Step 3
Add Adobo Seasoning (1 Tbsp) , Lime Juice (2 Tbsp) , Distilled White Vinegar (1 tsp) , Tomato Sauce (1 can) , and Fresh Cilantro (1/4 cup) . Stir well. Bring to a slight simmer.
Step 4
Once hot, add Garlic (1 Tbsp) and cook for 15 to 30 seconds. Immediately add onions, peppers, Green Olives (2 Tbsp) , and stir.
Step 5
Add the Pigeon Peas (2 cans) and one can full of water. Set heat to high and bring to a boil.
Step 6
Once at a boil, lower heat to low. Cover and cook for about 25 minutes.
Step 7
If you’d like to have the gandules a bit thicker, once done, crush some of the gandules right in the saucepan with a fork or a strainer making sure you put those crushed gandules right back in the saucepan. Raising the heat will also evaporate more of the liquid and help make it thicker.
Step 8
Serve warm with Long Grain White Rice (to taste) - this is the preferred rice for Latin cooking.
