Fiesta Rice

A perfect side for celebrating Cinco de Mayo.


3 cups cooked brown rice (I used Trader Joes instant microwavable)
¼ cup diced white onion
¼ cup diced yellow, red or orange bell pepper
1 cup chicken or vegetable broth *use a gluten-free brand such as Progresso Natural if you are on a gluten-free diet
1 cup canned stewed tomatoes
¼ cup corn (fresh, frozen thawed or canned rinsed)
¼ teaspoon chili powder
ICB spray or olive oil using olive oil sprayer (if both n/a use a teaspoon of olive oil)
Salt and pepper to taste


Cook rice according to package directions. Spray a medium pot with ICB or an olive oil sprayer or drizzle very lightly with a teaspoon olive oil and put on medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers and sauté for 4-5 minutes until softened. Add the broth, tomatoes, corn, chili powder and mix well, then stir in the cooked rice and heat 5-7 minutes until warm.

Makes 4.5 cups 9 servings
