Bland, bland, bland. I had hopes for this recipe, but could barely eat any. The only reason it's getting this high a rating was that I was able to make a meal out of it by adding some chicken ...

I made this last year for new years and my friends are already asking if I will make it again for our party!

This was not good. I took it to a potluck and it was avoided like the plague. The rice was odd in salsa. And made the mix mushy and bland.

Good recipe, however, If you grew up in the South you must know that you must also have ham hock or hog jowl with those peas.
