Jalapeno spam fried rice is what’s for lunch today. I have a thick slice of ham, eggs, carrots and green onions in my fridge and that calls for fried rice. Philippines and Hawaii are known to love spam. In the Philippines, spam is one of the canned goods enjoyed by people. People stock up on canned goods in case of emergencies like typhoon. Spam makes the list together with corn beef and sardines.
I’m glad spam came out with different flavors. Jalapeno spam is good and great for making fried rice. To make Jalapeno spam fried rice, dice and fry spam and ham. Cook eggs and slice. Then saute the onion and garlic. Add the rice and season with soy sauce and fish sauce. Mix it well and add the fried spam, ham and eggs. Throw in some green onions and carrots which I forgot to add. You have one hearty meal. Fried rice alone will satisfy you. See it is so easy to make.
