Recipe Notes

To get 3 cups cooked rice, bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add 1 cup uncooked white rice to the pot. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until rice is fluffy.

I used an 8-ounce of cooked, diced ham, but this recipe is a great way to use up leftover holiday ham.
