  • 2 cups medium-grain rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp sazon
  • 1/4 cup sofrito
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 3 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tbsp vino seco dry white wine (optional)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup sweet corn
  • 2 cans Vienna sausage drained
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper or to taste


  • Add the oil to a large pot and heat over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 20 seconds.
  • Add the sofrito, oregano, cumin, vino seco, and bay leaf. Cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the rice and coat it with the sofrito and spices.
  • Add the water, Vienna sausage, corn, salt, and pepper. Let it come to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, cover, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  • Fluff the rice with a fork and enjoy!


  • Use medium-grain rice, do not use instant rice or basmati rice.
  • Add some green peas and fresh cilantro.
  • If you don't have vino seco (dry white wine) feel free to use regular white wine or vinegar instead. If using white vinegar, add a splash. 
  • Use salami instead of Vienna sausage if you prefer.
  • To make it spicy, add some cayenne pepper or chili powder to the sofrito.
