Spanish Rice


1 cup rice
1 can tomatoes
2 onions
2 green peppers
Chili powder
Olive oil


Take 1 cup of rice and put it in a frying pan with enough olive oil to cover the pan a half an inch thick. Stir it until the grains are separated and brown. Add 1 can of tomatoes, 2 finely chopped onions and 2 chopped green peppers. Then season to taste with salt, pepper, and chili powder. Add enough water to make the mixture quite moist. Cover the pan and do not stir or remove the cover. Allow this to simmer slowly for half an hour.

    Hi Donna, I thought the same thing about the EVOO. I can’t imagine needing so much.
