We love Rice & Peas, its a regular dish at our home. Your version is wonderful, very spicy and tasty. We really enjoyed the addition of allspice, brown sugar and garlic in it. We love scotch bonnet peppers, so I minced a small one and added it to the rice... so good. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, it was the perfect accompaniment for the Jerk Chicken and Creamy Coleslaw. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.

I made this recipe for island foodies and they were raving!! This is the recipe to with! I did modify the recipe a teeny bit by sautéing the scallions, onions, and garlic in coconut oil before adding to the beans with the rice.

This got a thumbs up from Jamaican and Trinidadian friends. Yum! As with others, had to use coconut milk and an alternate pepper (Serrano, in my case). I was tempted to skip the brown sugar, but DON'T. It added a necessary layer of flavor.

Really good! I substituted a jalepeno pepper finely diced for the scotch bonnet. Will make again.

Thanks for a great recipe! I used coconut milk instead of cream because I couldn't find any in the store. I didn't put in a pepper but added a pinch of cayenne pepper. The recipe had an authentic taste and tasted like many of the Jamaican restaurants I have visited. This is definitely a keeper!

Delicious! Really enjoyed this. I did use 2 cans of pink beans, then threw everything into 1 big pot and simmer until the rice was tender. I will make this recipe again. I've never been able to find a recipe for "rice and beans" that I was fond of, but this is great!

Having never eaten Jamaican food before this was definitely a nice place to start. It was very tasty. I used a jalapeno pepper since I couldn't find a scotch bonnet pepper. Worked out fine. Will make again.

This is just like I remember!!! I'm so excited to know how to make these. My house smelled so good while making these. I didn't have a scotch bonnet so I cut some slits into a jalapeno and used that, it worked great,just the right amout of heat. I will make this again, whenever I'm in the mood for the islands. So good and easy to make. Thank you for sharing this recipe withus.
