Look for bottled sofrito in the Latin section of your supermarket.
1 (3 1/2-ounce) bag boil-in-bag rice
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 pound ground turkey breast or lean ground beef
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon capers, drained
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 (6-ounce) jar prepared sofrito (such as Goya)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Parsley sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Prepare rice according to package directions; stir in 1/8 teaspoon salt.
While rice cooks, cook ground turkey in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in 1/8 teaspoon salt, raisins, oregano, and cumin; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in water and next 4 ingredients (water through sofrito); cook 5 minutes or until slightly thick. Remove from heat. Stir in chopped parsley. Serve over rice. Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.
This has become one of our favorite things to make. Especially if your pressed for time it's quick and easy... The only hard part is finding the sofrito, we cooked this on vacation in our rv and went to 3 stores to find sofrito.
