Jibarita Cooks: Arroz Mamposteao

One of my great passions is cooking especially cooking Puertorrican food. It's like having a tiny piece of home on a plate and it makes me feel closer to my family since most of the recipes I've learned from my mother or grandmother

Here's the recipe for one of Tomas' favorite, Arroz Mamposteao, which I would translate to rice with beans mashed in : )

Arroz Mamposteao


3 cups cooked white rice
6 oz  Bacon
1/2 large white onion
1/2 large green or red pepper
1 pouch of Sazon Goya
1 tsp Adobo Goya
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 can Tomato sauce
1 16oz can of beans (pink or red)


1. Cut your 6 oz of bacon into small pieces and cook in large pot on medium heat for 8 minutes. Add onion and pepper. Let cook for 5 minutes.

2. Add in the tomato sauce, beans, sazon, adobo, cumin, organo and  black pepper. Bring to a boil. Cook at low heat for 5 minutes, then add in the cooked rice and mix well.

If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

  1. Oh, man, Sazon Goya makes everything better. I'll have to give this recipe a try sometime. I'm obsessed with Latin American food, and am always looking for a new, authentic recipe to try!
