Southern Bean 'n Rice pot

This is tagged vegetarian for a reason. Read all the way to the bottom for the changes that remove animal products. The bacon salt is only vegetarian though so vegans cant add that flavor back in, if you know of any great vegan bacon flavorings let me know

4 slices bacon
2 Tbsp. butter
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 c. frozen lima beans, thawed
1 can black eyed peas, drained
1. chicken both
1/2 c. half-an-half
2-3 c. cooked rice, cold is best
Salt an Pepper to taste

Cook bacon until crisp, remove from pan. Add butter to drippings, saute onion and garlic. Add lima beans, black eyed peas, and chicken both. Simmer until lima beans are very tender. Add rice and half-an-half. Simmer until everything is heated though and most of the liquid is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the top.

For Vegetarians:
1) Omit the bacon (duh!)
2) Use 2 Tbsp olive oil for your cooking oil.
3) Use imitation chicken or vegetable broth.
4) Season with J D bacon salt
