New Mexico Style Spanish Rice

New Mexico Style Spanish Rice created by Starrynews

My mother taught me this recipe. When she makes this rice, there's never any left! Using red bell pepper adds some sweetness which works well with the chili. It has a wonderful smokey flavor and now that rotel and similar products are on the market, there's no need to send to New Mexico for green chili!
