      I really enjoyed making the sofrito, and used 2 hot peppers to really ratchet up the heat. I also doubled the amount of ham, so this would be a hearty meal, and used green pigeon peas, which I have never had before! Even though I was very careful, I had to keep an eye on the rice to keep it from sticking to the pot. The seasoning was just right, and we had a very nice dinner. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.

      This is good and easy and I bet how it'd done in households all across Puerto Rico!

      What a great recipe! Sofrito was easy and making it fresh really made the dish. I made this for international day at my daughter's school to honor our PR heritage and it was a hit. Will definitely be making this again.

      Fantastic -- This was my first time making fresh sofrito -- so full of fresh flavor! I used one jalapeno and 1/4 of a habanero pepper in the sofrito, as well as the cubanelle. Loved the taste of fresh cilantro too. The rice was fantastic -- it had such a great salty, tangy taste, and the addition of ham made this a meal-in-one. Thanks for posting this recipe -- it got raves from the family and will be on our menu many times more.

      This was my first time cooking with sofrito, and I really liked it a lot! It added a nice flavor to the rice, and it made the kitchen smell wonderful. I had a problem with this recipe, though, because it does not indicate the amount of water to be used when cooking the rice (which I realized halfway through preparing the recipe). I followed the directions on my package of rice (2 cups water to 1 cup rice) and the results were very, very mushy. So, I guess I wouldn't recommend using that amount of water. :)

      I wasn't sure what a cubanelle was so I checked with Zaar and it's a bell pepper, lol. Anyway, I made this for dinner tonight and it made a complete meal with only some sliced tomato on the side. There is a ton of nutrition with very little fat or sugar. Beans, rice and ham wit peppers and tomatoe's. I used brown to good result and didn't fry anything, just proceeded without that step using chickpeas. I enjoyed it very much. The texture of the chickpeas and rice wit the ham and sofrito was lovely .
