Use Those Tomatoes and Peppers
Easy Spanish Rice Recipe

Peppers Tomatoes and Onion on cutting board

This recipe will make delicious use of your garden fresh tomatoes and peppers - and onions, too!


4 Tablespoons of canola or olive oil
1-1/2 cups uncooked white rice
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice (you may use all white rice if desired)
1/2 of a large onion, or 1 whole medium onion, chopped
1 large bell pepper, chopped
2 small red jalapeño peppers, finely diced (optional)
4 cups water
2 cups diced tomatoes
1 Tablespoon chili powder (may add more or less to taste)
1 teaspoon salt

Cooking Steps:

Chop or dice the onion. Remove stem and seeds from the pepper and chop into small pieces.

Chopped peppers on cutting board

Heat the oil in a heavy stock pot or large skillet. Add the rice, onion, and bell pepper. Add jalapeño pepper, if desired. Heat and stir until the rice is light brown and the onions are becoming transparent.
