    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)

      Rinse the rice well. Drain and set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat oil and butter in a large skillet that has a tight fitting lid. Add the onion and 1/2 teaspoons salt; saute over medium heat about 5 mins., until the onion is soft. Add the garlic and wine(or veg. broth) and cook 1-2 minutes , until the pan is nearly dry. Follow with the bell peppers(and chlies if using), 1/2 teaspoons salt, paprika, and a few pinches of cayenne, and the black pepper. Stir in the drained rice and saute with the onions and peppers until heated through, about 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Pour the boiling water over, making sure that is the rice is covered. When the water returns to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the pan and cook until rice is tender, just under 20 mins.(longer for brown rice).

      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
