I got this recipe from one of the various Core Weight Watcher boards. It is YUMMY!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil. Add rice and cook until golden and toasted. Add and lightly saute onion, bell pepper, and garlic.
  2. Put salt, 1/2 cup of tomatoes (undrained) and broth in a blender. Process till smooth.
  3. Add liquid from blender to the rice mixture slowly. You can drain the rest of the tomatoes and add them to the rice at this point if you want extra tomato.
  4. Bring to a boil, cover, turn heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender, about 1 hour. (Or however long brown rice needs to simmer - my package says 1 hour.)
  5. Don't remove the lid during the cooking process.
  6. If you don't have fresh garlic, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder to the blender.

Loved it! With Rotel offering mild, medium and hot, you can control the heat of your rice. I used my hand immersion blender making it quick and easy. We really, really liked it. Thanks for posting.
