I also like to add in a couple tablespoons of fresh garlic in with the onion as well as the addition of garlic salt, and also some cayenne pepper for heat, prep time includes browning the rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saute pan, brown the rice in oil over low to medium heat, stirring constantly (watch closely as it burns easily).
  2. When the rice is brown, add the onion, bell pepper, chili powder and garlic salt.
  3. Turn the heat to high, and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Add the tomatoes, and then chicken stock; bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat, and let stand for 15-20 minutes.

My family and guests raved about this dish. I fried the onion and green pepper. Poured it into my rice cooker along with a can of chili seasoned tomatoes and the reamining ingredients. Turned it on and voila. TY Kittencal for a lovely recipe.

I thought this was so good and really so easy. I didn't have a bell pepper so I used a 4 oz can of green chilies and used brown rice instead of white. Thanks Kittencal for a great rice recipe we will use often!!

Quick, easy & tasty - a nice side to baked chimichangas! I scaled the recipe in half & garlic powder was all I had in the spice rack - otherwise, I followed the recipe. I should have compensated by adding some salt - I'll know better next time. Thanx Carol!
