Rinse both wild rice and white rice under running water and set aside to drain. In a saucepan with a heavy bottom, under medium to high heat, add oil, original hot sauce, garlic and chive. Let spices cook a few seconds to release their aroma onto the oil. Add vegetable bouillon or seasoning and stir. Add wild rice and fry while stirring for about 4 – 5 minutes. Add white rice and cook gently stirring for another 3 minutes. Add lima beans and stir once to incorporate. Add water, and the remaining spices. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Stir gently to mix and bring to a boil. When water has started evaporating and you can only see the rice mixture, lower the heat and cover tightly. Let cook for 20 to 25 minutes until rice mixture is fully cooked and fluffy. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
