Yellow Rice -Arroz Amarillo

I love to try new rice side dishes and this Arroz Amarillo (Yellow Rice) did not disappoint! It's a flavorful rice with a pretty golden color that's confetti'd with onion, peppers, peas and tomatoes. There's also a hearty dose of olive oil that gives it a pretty shine. We all truly enjoyed this with our Sunday dinner. I think this is a great recipe to keep handy for grilling season, it would be perfect with BBQ chicken. Don't hesitate to give this one a try folks, I think you'll like it:@)

I did save a recipe to make a homemade Sazon Seasoning, but happened to find a box of Goya at Dollar Tree.
I used one envelope for this recipe (there are 8 envelopes per box).

Yellow Rice -Arroz Amarillo-adapted from Kevin Is Cooking
2 Tblsp Olive Oil
