This recipe only takes one pan and about half an hour to make. It tastes great as leftovers too. If you like your food spicier, feel free to add another jalepeno or two. The two jalepenos do not make this recipe spicy but do impart a lot of flavor. I made this one night with a regular green pepper and just wasn't the same. If you like your rice fluffier, make sure you rinse it first, we like ours a little sticky. This is a favorite weeknight meal at our house, there are always fights over who gets the leftovers for lunch. It is also gluten free. I hope you enjoy it.
