I made a recipe of arroz con gandules here;
Problem was, I found it rather bland. I added Achiote paste (which didn't really break down) and some sliced fresh tomato with salt (which helped), but overall I found it a bit boring. I served it with grilled drumsticks. The combination of the two was nice, but not great. Does anyone have a way to perk up this puerto rican staple, or another rice recipe (i.e. Mexican or other latino) which has a bit more flavour?
