  1. In a large nonstick frying pan or a dutch oven put the oil and onion.
  2. Stir-fry over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Move the onion to the side of the pan and add the garlic.

  5. Add the minced green chili and the green bell pepper and stir-fry for 3 more minutes.
  6. Add the rice and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, until all of the rice grains have gotten covered with the oil and the rice has had a chance to fry a bit.
  7. Add the tomato, corn and the carrot, cumin and oregano.
  8. Stir-fry for one more minute.
  9. Add the chicken broth (or vegetable broth or water).
  10. Bring the mixture to a good boil, cover, reduce heat to very low and cook for 20 minutes.
