I changed this recipe quite a bit but it turned out really well! I wanted something really quick after work, so I made long grain brown rice with broth in my rice cooker before hand. When I came home, I quickly threw this together (fried the onion and garlic in oil, added the cooked chicken sausage, tomato paste, and canned beans, added the cooked rice, then topped it with the white pepper). I was able to double the recipe successfully. Tasty and easy! Thanks for posting!

We love Jag around here this is a good basic recipe. I usually double the linguica (by request LOL!) use kidney beans instead of lima beans. I've used ketchup instead of paste if I didn't have it. I get requests for this recipe all the time. Simple and yummy!

Very good! I have been looking for a good recipe for Jag for a while. My husband loves it! This was very tasty. I used red kidney beans and chirozo. Next time the only thing that I think that I will do different is use chicken broth instead of water. The recipe that my husband remembers from way back had chicken broth in it. But still very good!

My godmother is from the Cape Verde Islands. We lost touch over the years and the recipe for jag was never written down. Thanks for posting. I love a one pot meal and this is great. I used kidney beans instead of limas, and my own mother uses whole green beans. No matter, it still tastes great .

This is so quick to throw together! I make it without the lima beans, and my teenage sons and all their friends LOVE IT!!!
