Baked Rice with Chorizo and Clams
This dish can also be made with sausage and broccoli rabe. Both variations have the same base. See the Chef's Note below for instructions.
Sausage-and-Broccoli Rabe Variation: Replace chorizo with 8 ounces Italian sausage, casings removed, broken into pieces. Cook until opaque, about 3 minutes. Replace water with 3/4 cup chicken stock. Replace clams with 6 ounces broccoli rabe, cut into 2-inch pieces (5 1/2 cups) and tossed with 1 tablespoon water and 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt. Stir once removed from oven.
