DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the peas and thyme until the peas have split.
  • Drain, reserving about a quarter cup of water with the peas.
  • In a heavy-bottomed pot, fry up the bacon until just crisped and remove with a slotted spoon.
  • In the same pot, add the onion, garlic and chourico, cook until golden and the chourico is just browned.
  • While this is going on, boil the rice in plenty of well-salted water until tender.
  • Drain and keep ready.
  • Drain off most of the fat. Add the peas and water, stir and cover a few minutes.
  • Add the cooked rice and reserved bacon and mix well.
  • Cook over lowest heat until nearly dry.
  • Take care not to scorch the mixture.
  • Adjust the seasoning with salt, pepper and the tabasco.
