Gandules Guisados (Stewed Pigeon Peas)
I made this recipe on Instagram and everyone asked me for the recipe, so here it is! We love rice and beans in my house. I make them so many ways, especially since I’m Colombian, my husband’s Puerto Rican, I have family in DR. My family is a melting pot, and our different ethnic cuisines inspire a lot of my recipes, which are often a fusion of all these cultures. Gandules, known as stewed pigeon peas in English, are delicious over rice with these grilled chicken thighs, aka Pollo Sabroso. I always have canned gandules in my pantry, if you do too you can also try my Arroz Con Gandules or Slow Cooker Pork and Gandules Stew.
