    This is one of my favorite Puerto Rican rice recipe. I love pigeon peas. You can find sazon and pigeon peas in the hispanic section of the grocery store. Pigeon Peas are Puerto Rico's national dish. This recipe is from About.com.

      We enjoyed this delicious change from our regular white rice side dish. It was almost a meal in itself with the ham, peas, etc., and next time I'll use more of the ham and prepare it as an entree. I added some sauteed onion to the dish, and will try adding a little more of the sofrito next time since I loved the flavor it gave to the rice. Thanks for posting the delicious recipe!
