Spicy rice! From Readers Digest "Quick And Thrifty Cooking In South Africa"

Top Review by Susie D

This reminded me of the rice served with Tex-Mex food. The "hot" in the recipe title doesn't reflect the level of heat due to spices. The rice is seasoned, not spicy hot. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a heavy 3 litre saucepan over moderate heat. Add the onion, and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, or until soft.
  2. Stir in the rice, red pepper, chilli powder, origanum, tomato juice and tomato puree, then add the water and salt. Stir once, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed.
