“I came on this by accident when I added a little goat cheese to left over Puerto Rician Rice.. I tried it 3-4 times and came up with this recipe. I found that adding the cheddar and the goat cheese gave it a great bite and texture. I used sorrento cheddar in the plastic bag. You may have to go to a store like Good Foods or a speciality store to get the Adobo seasons.The Smithfield Ham can be found in most grocery stores in the Deli section. get them to slice 1 slice of ham1/2 inch thick. Its wonderful ham. I like brown rice becausee its so good for you. Please enjoy and let me know if you have suggestions.”
