1/2 lb Chorizo (Spanish Sausage);
-cut in 3/4"pieces
1 ts Achiote
4 c Hot Cooked Rice
1 c Frozen Peas; thawed and
2 tb Carrot; slivered
Salt And Freshly Ground
-Pepper; to taste
4 Hard-Boiled Eggs;

Fry sausage until well cooked and browned. Remove sausage from pan; keep
warm. If necessary, add enough oil to pan to make 2 tablespoons oil. Add
achiote; cook until oil is red. Combine chorizo with rice, peas, and carrot
in oil; mix, stirring frequently, until hot. Season to taste. Arrange

NOTES : The Spanish use saffron to color their delicious paella, but in
Puerto Rico and many South American countries achiote (annatto seed) is
used to color native rice dishes. Achiote is tasteless. The red coloring is
obtained by slowly heating it in oil.
