  I seem to remember you being involved in a conversation about brown
  rice a few months back...  Here's something that you might find
  interesting.
  
  Put ham or bacon in a 4-quart soup kettle and cook over low heat
  until fat is rendered.  Increase heat to medium and stir until
  cooked, about 5 minutes.
  
  Remove chicken skin, cut meat off the bones and then cut boneless
  chicken into bite-size pieces.  Add to kettle or skillet with bacon
  or ham and toss until color turns pale, about 4 minutes.  Remove
  bacon or ham and chicken with a slotted spoon and put on paper
  toweling; set aside. Add sausage to kettle and brown all over, about
  6 to 8 minutes; remove. Leave 2 tablespoons fat in kettle; pour off
  and discard remaining fat.
  
  Insert metal blade in food processor.  Mince garlic by adding to
  machine with motor on.  Add onion and chop very coarsely with half
  second pulses. Add green pepper and process with half-second pulses
  until mixture is chopped to medium consistency.  Add mixture to
  kettle and stir over low heat until softened, about 10 minutes.
  Process tomatoes until pureed; set aside.
  
  Add rice to ingredients in kettle and stir over low heat for 2
  minutes. Then stir in oregano Thyme, file, black pepper, cayenne
  pepper and cumin. Add tomatoes and broth.  Stir well and let mixture
  to boiling. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook rice mixture 15 to 20
  minutes. Cut sausage into 1/4-inch thick coin like slices.  Mix
  sausage, ham and chicken pieces into rice.  Cover and cook until rice
  is tender (rice may not absorb all the liquid) about 20 minutes
  longer. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding salt as needed.  Stir
  shrimp into hot rice mixture, cover pot and let stand for 8 to 10
  minutes. Serve rice with shrimp, meats and liquid.
  
  Serves 8.
