Locrio de Salchichas y Gandules Verdes con Coco a great Dominican favorite

While for some of you the word Locrio may seem out of the box, it is a typically and very much used word in the Latin Community specifically in the Dominican Republic.

Locrio is a main dish maid out of rice and some type of meat (pork, chicken, salami, seafood, sausage and many others).

In this particular recipe just like many Dominicans we are putting our own twist to it base on our mood and on the ingredients on hand.
