    TammieN1's Note:

    My mother taught me this recipe. When she makes this rice, there's never any left! Using red bell pepper adds some sweetness which works well with the chili. It has a wonderful smokey flavor and now that rotel and similar products are on the market, there's no need to send to New Mexico for green chili!
