Let’s Get Started

  • Prep Time: 15 mins

  • Cook Time: 35 mins

  • Makes: 5 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ package (18 oz) EL POPULAR Longaniza Sausage

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 onion, medium dice

  • 15 oz. can black beans, drained

  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro

  • ½ lb. chihuahua cheese

  • 1 cup long grain rice, or a package of instant rice

  • 2 cups water

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 lime

Directions

  • Remove Longaniza from casing and cut into ¼ inch medallions. Cook until browned about 6 min, set aside.

  • In a medium sauce pan, add olive oil, onion and garlic until onion is almost translucent. Add cooked Longaniza, cilantro, and black beans. Cook on low heat for 20 min. Add salt to taste.

  • Prepare rice according to package – OR – add rice and water in a medium sauce pot and bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat to medium and cover. After 10 min, check if rice is fluffy and cooked.

  • Mix rice, beans, and Longaniza together.

  • Top with chihuahua cheese and cilantro. Squeeze limes over to taste.

Longaniza 101

  • Pronounced “Long-ga-nee-sa”.

  • It’s a sausage similar to Chorizo, but is perfect for grilling since it is firmer and doesn’t crumble when cooking due to being in a natural casing (like a bratwurst).

  • Unlike Chorizo, which is typically used as an ingredient in a dish, Longaniza can stand on its own as a meal, especially when nestled inside a hot dog bun or tortilla.

Directions

  • Remove Longaniza from plastic packaging.

  • Place sausage on grill and cook until the outside edges are slightly crispy and brown.

  • If using a skillet, place in a skillet with enough water to submerge the sausages halfway. Cook over medium heat until all water evaporates off, and outside of Longaniza is brown and crispy.
