This colorful rice is perfect for a Mexican meal. The rice takes on the warm essence of sweet peppers, onions, and paprika as they slowly simmer together. Cayenne adds heat, but for a spicier version, include a diced jalapeno chili or two. This also makes a nice filling for bell peppers. Adapted from Field of Greens cookbook by Annie Somerville. I f you do use brown basmati rice, you may need to cook it a little longer, check pkg. directions)
