Found this recipe to be easy and accurate..made a few changes ie: skipped the mushrooms and garlic and added a can of drained mixed veges; just as a matter of preference. Got rave reviews at my dinner table!

I got a great deal on "traffic-light" bell peppers (one each red, yellow and green), and this was a great way to use them. A very colorful side dish that I served with chicken enchiladas. I prefer a little kick to my Spanish rice so I added a splash of Tabasco.
