“This is a recipe that my mom made for us while growing up. We live in Minnesota, where SPAM originated, and my father is Puerto Rican; this was an ingenious way for my mother to weave the cultures together. This is a quick and tasty meal, enjoy!”

  2. Stir together the luncheon meat, kidney beans with liquid, butter, and onion flakes in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon the beans over the cooked rice to serve.

Having lived on Guam for many years I have to give this five stars since Spam recipes take on an all new creativity there. My family uses the spam and rice for a quick and easy fixer that we can also add extra hot sauce or salsa since we love extra heat. We also like to drizzle this with finadene. Thank you CYNDMN28 for this one!

This was very easy and quick to make. It tastes great and smells good when cooking. I often make a traditional red beans and rice, which is much more labor and time intensive. This recipe is almost as good, as was so much easier! I added a few dashes of hot sauce and a can of black beans in addition to the red beans. Mmmmm!

What can I say..This dish is DELISH!! I thought it was going to be bland but was I wrong! It packed flavor! I did do some minor changes.FIRST I only had 1 can of red beans so I had to cut the measurements down a tad bit..While my rice was cooking (I made my rice in a rice cooker) I minced 3 garlic cloves (I love garlic in my beans) and minced 2Tbs. Of fresh onion. I then only had 1/3 of spam in the fridge..So I chopped it in cubes and browned my spam in a skillet (I like my spam crunchy).. While my spam was starting to cook (about 3-5min).. I added my garlic and onion and lowered the heat to med. I cooked it until my onion and garlic were soft..I then added it to my beans in a pot and added 2 TBS of butter to the pot and cooked it as described in the original recipe..It tasted fantastic! My friend and I polished the whole pot of SPAM/beans off and still wanted more! I think next time for 2 grown people I will use 2 cans of beans..
