I found this on Facebook.  Cuisinart  reposted from .  Someone suggested printing it out and laminating it.  Great idea, right?!?!    Here you go:
Ever wonder how many cups there are a in a gallon? How many tablespoons in a cup? Wonder no more. We've put together this colorful measurements & conversions chart that's perfectly pinnable, both on your fridge or a Pinterest board. Pin it here:


1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 chorizo sausages, chopped
1/4 C red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/3 C onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp recaito
1/2 C tomato sauce
1/2 packet chicken buillion
1 packet Sazon
1/2 tsp Adobo
2 C water
2 C white rice

Heat olive oil in caldero or rice pot over medium heat.  Place chorizo in olive oil, breaking up with a wooden spoon.   Add pepper, onion, and garlic.  Saute 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Add recaito and tomato sauce.  Let simmer additional 2 minutes.  Sprinkle bullion, Sazon, and Adobo into mixture; stir until mixed well.  Add water; bring to a boil. When the broth comes to a boil, add the rice.  Turn the rice down to low.  When the water has evaporated until it is level with the rice, add the alcaparrado, stir once, put the lid on and turn heat as low as possible.  Let rice simmer approximately 30 minutes.  Now, you don't want your rice to be too wet.  This should not be a sticky rice; but, of course, you don't want it to stick and burn.  The only way this will work is to LEAVE THE RICE ALONE!!  This is very difficult for me.  My usual approach to cooking is to hover over the stove, checking, stirring, sometimes even praying.  With yellow rice, you can't do this.  Well, you can pray, but you need to do it from a distance.  I have learned that when I turn it down and put the lid on, it's best to just leave the room.  Really.  You have to do this.  Leave on heat for another 5 minutes.
