Add olive oil, tomato paste, pigeon peas (red kidney beans can be substituted), onions, celery, finely chopped garlic, and rice. Stir. Add tomatoes last.
Add water, and hot pepper (whole, do not cut!) or pimento pepper. Bring to a boil.
Cover saucepan and leave to cook on low flame, about forty minutes until the rice dries
