  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cube chicken bouillon tablets
  • 2 tablespoons homemade sofrito
  • ¼ cup olives
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon adobo seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 16 oz Dominican salami cubed
  • 3 cups rice
  • 4 cups water


  • In a large cast-iron pot, heat oil over medium heat. Saute chicken bouillon tablet, sofrito, olives, tomato sauce, adobo, oregano, black pepper. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the Dominican salami and let cook for an additional 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Add water. When the water begins to boil, add the rice. Let cook, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  • Once the water has evaporated, lower the heat to medium-low. Cover and let cook for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, stir the rice carefully and cover for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Serve warm with a side of salad


  • This recipe is made with long-grain white rice. You can make it with brown or wild, but it will take longer for it to cook through.
  • Use a thick-bottomed Dutch oven, cast iron pot or a caldero for this recipe. It will conduct heat more evenly so you are less likely to get hot spots that can scorch the bottom.
