Mexican Rice

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by IngridH

This side dish has all of the warm flavors that I love in Mexican food, without having to go to a restaraunt to get them. This isn't terribly spicy as written, but you may substitute a jalapeno for the bell pepper or add cayenne if you wish to bump up the heat.

A really great rice recipe. The spices were present, but not overpowering, and there was some colour in it, in the form of green bell pepper. This is definetely a keeper.
