I know it's a little late for this dish, but I made it for dinner last night and it was delicious. It was published in the Chicago Tribune a couple of weeks ago.
Cook bacon and onion in large non-stick skillet until onion begins to soften, 3-4 minutes. Add celery and bell peppers. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until vegetables begin to brown at edges, 5-6 minutes.
Pour in vinegar, cook for several seconds, then add peas; heat briefly. Add cream and reduce heat to low. Simmer gently 2 to 3 minutes to thicken. Add salt and red pepper to taste. Remove from heat, stir in cilantro and serve.
It made 2 big servings.
NOTE: I used 2 Morningstar Farms breakfast strips instead of bacon and sauteed that with the onions in canola oil.
