You can use dove, quail, chicken, etc. Bone birds and cut into small pieces.

Melt oleo in cast iron skillet and brown birds slowly.

Add onions, celery and water; cook until tender.

Add rice, pimentos and jalapeños. Cover and bake in oven at 350º for 10 -- 15 minutes. Serve piping hot.

For more flavor, season rice by cooking in broth or adding seasonings.
