"A lightening-quick version of the classic, this cooks in the time it takes to boil the rice. Hot sauce, please?" In a medium nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; add ham (if using), onion, bell pepper, celery, garlic and jalapeno pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add beans, tomato juice, oregano and 1/4 cup of water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Spoon bean mixture over hot cooked rice, sprinkle with scallions and parsley to garnish, and serve.
