    truebrit's Note:

    When we lived in Puerto Rico, this was a favorite meal. We're back in the States now, but when I make Red Beans and Rice it transports me back to La Isla Del Encanto! It can be eaten as a meal itself or with a simple salad.

      Just as your family got hooked, so did mine. I love this dish, it is authentic, easy to make, and the left overs are fantastic. Once again, when I heated up my lunch at work, my co-workers, enticed by the aroma, gathered around to see what I was eating. If you like spice, try this dish.

      Excellent, easy to make and the flavor is equal to what is served at restaurants here in Puerto Rico.

      Good stuff! I changed the recipe up a bit to make it vegan and didn't sacrifice any flavor...used a soy chorizo and then used a couple tablespoons of vegan bacon bits instead of ham which provided that smoky flavor. In the end I added I can of diced tomatoes. . .juice and all. It tasted a lot like my chorizo chili which I love.
