Spanish Rice

I forgot all about this recipe!  It is very good.

2 T vegetable oil

1 cup uncooked white rice

1 onion, chopped

1/2 green bell pepper, chopped (we usually opt for red or yellow  instead)

2 cups water

10 oz can diced tomatoes with green chiles

2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt

1. Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Saute rice, onion, and pepper until rice is browned and onions are tender.

2. Stir in water and tomatoes. Season with chili powder and salt.

3. Cover and simmer 30 minutes or until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed.
