Step 1

Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add tomato sauce, garlic, sofrito and sazon, cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 2

Transfer liquid from can red beans to measuring cup; add enough water to measure 3½ cups. Add liquid to pot; bring to boil. Add beans, rice and sugar; stir. Bring rice mixture to a boil; reduce heat to medium low and cook, covered, until water is absorbed, about 20 min.

Step 3

Remove rice from heat. Let sit until rice becomes tender, 5 minutes. Fluff with fork. Divide evenly among serving bowls.

Tip by La Cocina Goya

Save Time and Add Flavor with GOYA® Sofrito!

Sofrito – a puree of tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cilantro and garlic – is used as a flavor-packed cooking base in many Latino dishes; like soups, stews and seasoned beans. But making the mixture yourself can be time consuming – so we took the freshest ingredients and prepped them for you. Simply add a heaping spoonful or two of GOYA® Sofrito to your favorite dishes and enjoy the authentic flavors you love, without the work.
