DIRECTIONS

  • MAKE SOFRITO:
  • Purée all sofrito ingredients in a food processor.
  • MAKE RICE:
  • Cut out a round of parchment or wax paper slightly larger than diameter of a wide 4- to 5-quart pot.
  • Pat ham dry and cook in annatto oil in pot over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until starting to crisp, about 4 minutes.
  • Add sofrito, olives, and capers and cook, stirring, until liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
  • Add rice and cook, stirring, until it sizzles, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in peas, water, and 1 1/4 teaspoons salt and bring to a simmer.
  • Simmer, uncovered, over medium-high heat until almost all of liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes, reducing heat to medium once water is below level of rice.
  • Gently stir from bottom to top, then smooth top of rice.
  • Place parchment round directly over rice and cover pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook, undisturbed, 30 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, then discard parchment and gently fluff rice with a fork.
  • Cover with lid and let stand 10 minutes.
