Arroz Con Gandules Recipe @pinch

Clairessa's Spanish rice is fantastic. This Arroz Con Gandules recipe is full of spices and Spanish flavor. We opted to add cubed ham and loved the salty flavor it added. Green pigeon peas add a contrast in texture and a layer of nutty flavor. A delicious side dish for any meal if you love warm Spanish spices. This is a recipe that my grandma makes for Spanish Rice. Mine is not exactly like hers, but it is pretty dang close! To include my Puerto Rican touch, I added a tad bit more ingredients.
