This is a very simple to make. Seasoned rice and peas make an excellent main meal. I am sure it will become a favorite once you try it.

This was very tasty. Smells wonderful when cooking too! The only thing I did different was omit the sugar and add minced garlic. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Didn't have a serrano but had a jalapeno in the fridge so I used that. The spices all complement each other very well but don't dominate the flavor. Nice side dish. Read More

Quite tasty. I think it would have done well with some garlic I'll try that next time. I would use a lot more than 2 cloves if you want to taste them--maybe 5 or 6 per cup of rice. It was pretty spicy not too much for my liking but it may not complement your other dishes. You might want to start with 1/2 of a serrano. It's tough to judge this because peppers vary quite a bit from crop to crop. Read More
