Peruvian-ish Yellow Rice

While we love the flavor of yellow rice, I always had to turn a blind eye to the ingredients and sodium level on the label. No more! With the release of Peruvian-ish, it is so easy to make yellow rice from ingredients already in your pantry.

This savory yellow rice is delicious served alongside our Peruvian Charcoal Grilled Chicken recipe.


Print Recipe
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 heaping Tbsp Dizzy Pig Peruvian-ish seasoning
  • 2 cups rice (I love Uncle Ben’s)
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock or vegetable broth (yes, you can use water, but why would you?)
  • 1/2 cup thawed, frozen peas



  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan. Add chopped onion and Peruvian-ish seasoning
  2. Sauté until onion is translucent. Add rice to sautéed onion and stir to coat
  3. Add chicken stock, raise heat and bring to a boil
  4. Stir, cover, reduce heat to simmer for 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed
  5. During the last 5 minutes, add thawed peas to the sauté pan
  6. If desiring a brighter yellow color to the rice, additional Peruvian-ish seasoning may be added before serving.
  7. Delicious alongside a simple grilled chicken (also seasoned with Peruvian-ish) and garnished with chopped parsley.
