Servings 4        

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1/4 cup diced smoked ham
3/4 cup Basic Recaito
1 can (about 15 ounces) gandules (green pigeon peas), or 1-1/4 ounce bag frozen
2 cups tomato sauce
2 cups short-grain rice
4 to 4-1/2 cups water
salt and black pepper to taste

Directions:
1 Heat the oil in a large pot with a tight-fitting lid. Add smoked ham and fry lightly. Add
the Recaito, gandules, and tomato sauce. Mix well and cook over medium heat for 5
minutes. Add the rice and water to cover. Turn the heat to medium-high and cook until
the water is entirely absorbed. Add salt and pepper, stir, and turn the heat to low.
Cover and cook for 30 to 45 minutes.

formed at the bottom of the pan, and top the rice with it.
