It’s almost back to school and things will again start to get hectic. As parents, we generally have to balance work with helping our children with homework, getting them to practices, and throwing together food for them and their friends who always come over after school and on weekends. That’s why an easy dish is key in these hectic days. Arroz Con Gandules as we call it in Spanish is a recipe that brings back many memories of my childhood.
I’ve put together a perfect, easy snack to throw together when guests stop by. It tastes great and is now a staple side at all of my family’s get-togethers!
An Easy Dish that Satisfies
X dish is perfect for busy days when you just don’t have time to be in the kitchen for hours. The thing I love about it is that it’s delicious and satisfying, but I don’t have to toil in the kitchen to make it. That’s always a winner in my book. All it takes to make this delicious, easy dish is Hellmann’s, Lipton Recipe Secrets, and Knorr – all of which I got from Walmart. With this recipe, I can whip something up that tastes amazing, saves me time and money, and still satisfies everyone at the table. It’s perfect!
To begin, you’ll need ingredients that you can find at your local Walmart or on Walmart.com. I enjoy using Walmart’s Grocery Pickup to get everything I need. It’s the easiest way to buy groceries. All I have to do is head to the Walmart website, choose my items, and then head over to the store and pick them up. Easy peasy!
