      This is a great recipe. I am hispanic but I grew up eating the Mexican Rice and Beans variation...with pinto beans and yellow rice. I really enjoyed this Puerto Rican Version. Simply Great!

      This recipe was really good. Followed it almost completely, but I left out the ham and spam. ( I don't like either and wasn't sure what to substitute.) Tasted pretty much how I expected. I would have liked it to have a little more POW! Next time I'll just add more of the spices.
