  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup, diced onion
  • 1/2 cup, diced mixed bell peppers
  • 0.5, diced tomato
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon salsa

How To3 Steps

Step 1

Dice onions, bell peppers, and tomato, set aside.

Step 2

In medium sauce melt butter. Add tomato, onion, and bell peppers. Cook until onion and peppers are tender.

Step 3

Add spices, and rice. Mix well, cooking rice for about 2 minutes. Slowly add water and bring to a boil. Cover, and simmer for 25 minutes, or until rice is tender, and water has evaporated. Serve hot.

Chef's Notes

For the mixed bell peppers, I use red, green, and yellow. You can also add jalapeno peppers for an added kick. 
Instead of fresh tomato can use a small amount of tomato paste, or tomato sauce. Replace the water with chicken broth for added flavor.
