    PamLuvs2Cook's Note:

    Being a military family we get the pleasure of meeting people from all over the world. My girlfriend who lives in Guam gave me this recipe. So that I don't misplace it I'm putting it into my cookbook for later use.

      I love Guamanian food. My Husband (Air Force) and I got to live on Guam for only 2 years. We absolutely loved it. The seeds can also be called annatto seeds. It's the same thing

      We lived in Guam for 7 years as a military family and our children love red rice. We are going to attempt to serve the dish at our 20th Wedding Anniversary to share with our family and friends.

      For the fancier version of this, you can add peas and bacon.
