Arroz Amarillo

Papi loved arroz amarillo with everything, and he also loved all other kinds of rice, after all he was Puerto Rican! When mami was cooking fish, he insisted on yellow rice only. Mami would make plenty of it and we would have left overs later on during the week. Arroz Amarillo is simple to make. In Puerto Rico she made hers with achiote, but here in the states nobody at the grocery stores ever heard of it so she made it using just a bit of tomato sauce. Now we can sometimes find achiote seeds in the stores, if not I use Sazón Goya with Annato. recipe
