Save Time and Add Flavor with GOYA®
GOYA® Pitted Alcaparrado is the perfect blend of olives, pimientos and capers that adds a special briny flavor to this Arroz con Pollo recipe and many of our other favorites, like beef stew and ropa vieja. But what makes it even more special: This convenient jar saves us valuable time in the kitchen. We simply the spoon the veggies onto our cutting board, give them a quick chop, and we’re on our way – no pitting, or mixing required!
