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.
