Pigeon Peas (Gandules) Nutritional Info
Originally cultivated in Peru, these popular “peas” (technically a legume) have earned their place as a staple in the popular Mexican dish “Arroz Con Gandules”. Our petite peas contain 3 simple ingredients: pigeon peas, water and salt – with no additives or preservatives. Bake them in the oven to create added crunch to any dish or use as a meat alternative in tacos, burritos or burgers.
- Made in Peru
- BPA-free can lining
Drain and rinse. Refrigerate after opening. Traditionally prepared with rice dishes.
I got the red 40 blues.
I was sad to see that you add red 40 to your enchilada sauce. I have enjoyed it but will try to find an alternative as I am having health issues and trying to cut out unhealthy ingredients from my diet. Is it necessary?
Response from La Preferida
Hi Leslie, we completely understand the need for clean and safe ingredients! Luckily, we do have an Organic and Gluten-Free alternative to our Red Enchilada Sauce which you can find here. No artificial ingredients here 🙂 Hope this helps! https://shop.lapreferida.com/products/organic-red-enchilada-sauce-tetra-recart%C2%AE?_pos=2&_sid=ea3cb464f&_ss=r
The best rice on the market
I love this rice, but sad that the store near me that carried it has now closed. However, I will search for it simply because it is reliable and the best in taste. I’ve never been a fan of jasmine or basmati rice – they both have distinct aroma and taste that can fight with food at times. This rice is perfect for pretty much any use. It’s not pounded and beaten down like many bags of white rice are. The quality is consistent and the rice is extremely clean right from the bag (although I always wash rice regardless to eliminated some of the starch). I’ve been a fan for years and will continue to be, even if it takes a bit more effort to find now.
La Preferida has always been#1
I’ve always enjoyed La Preferida special spicy flavor!
A delicious quick meail.
The best refried beans out there!
I have tried every brand of refried beans out there and the La Preferida authentic refried beans are by far the best ones on the market! I guess everyone in my town knows this as well, because it’s always hard to find it on the shelves. I ordered two cases, which arrived well packaged and not one dented can! And just in time, as I was down to my last can in the pantry! If this company ever stops making this, I don’t know what I’ll do!!
