This easy mexican rice side dish is made with rice, onion, green bell pepper, garlic, tomatoes, and spices. It is way better than a lot of the rice served in many restaurants in my opinion, and couldn't be easier!

Great recipe and easy, too. I made one change-we don't care for green bell pepper, so I subbed a diced jalapeno. This dish went well with enchiladas. Made for Spring 2014 PAC.

Really great easy rice. Didn't add the salt and used low sodium broth to cut down on the sodium.
