Number of Servings: 4


    1 cup white rice
    1 stick (8 oz.) Gaspar's Chourico, sliced thin (hot Portuguese sausage)
    1 cup frozen lima beans (or any bean you prefer)
    2 Tbsp. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
    1/2 cup raw, chopped onion
    salt & pepper to taste


This recipe freezes well, so I use 2 portions for dinner then freeze 2 additional portions for another meal. I like to use this as a side dish with chicken.


Saute chourico and onion in pan until onion is translucent, but not brown. Add 2 cups water, 1 cup rice, lima beans and margarine. Add salt & pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover to simmer for 25 minutes until liquid is fully absorbed. Remove pan from heat and let sit covered for 5 minutes. Fluff and serve.
