    Sharon123's Note:

    This colorful rice is perfect for a Mexican meal. The rice takes on the warm essence of sweet peppers, onions, and paprika as they slowly simmer together. Cayenne adds heat, but for a spicier version, include a diced jalapeno chili or two. This also makes a nice filling for bell peppers. Adapted from Field of Greens cookbook by Annie Somerville. I f you do use brown basmati rice, you may need to cook it a little longer, check pkg. directions)

      Great rice! I was surprised DH liked it as much as he did since he does not really like peppers, but I diced them really small so the flavor blended better. I used chicken stock instead of wine, and dried herbs. Will be making this again. Made for ZWT8.

      This rice is so good. I didn't use salt. The color is great. I used a red bell pepper and dry white wine. I didn't use cilantro/parsley. We liked it that way. Even my son liked it. It was very easy to do. Thanks Sharon :) Made for 123 hit wonders
