Add beans and let cook until tender. Pour water in pot if water boils out during cooking.Add salt,escallion.thyme,and peppers.Let seasonings cook for 10-15mins. Add rice to mixture then cover and turn flame down to low. Let it slow cook until rice is cooked to your preference.

My goodness how did this recipe become Jamaican Rice & Peas? This variation may be very tasty, but I think you should change the title, and remove the word Jamaican. Jamaicans do vary the recipe for Rice and Peas, but never, ever have I seen any Jamaican chef or domestic cook prepare Rice & Peas with these ingredients. It's really misrepresenting the original dish.
