Submitted by: SUNNY238

Introduction

I had some extra green peppers sitting in my fridge that needed to be used, so I just threw this together. It turned out Great! I hope you enjoy it too!

Ingredients

    1 14.5oz can plain diced tomatoes, undrained
    1 8 oz can tomato sauce
    1/2 med. onion, diced
    2 green peppers, diced
    1 cup dry brown rice
    2 cups water
    1 tbsp minced garlic
    1/4 tsp dried thyme
    1/4 tsp dried oregano
    1/4 tsp dried basil
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1 16 oz can reduced sodium dark red kidney beans (I used Bush's), drained and rinsed

Directions

Add all ingredients to a skillet except the kidney beans, bring to a boil, reduce heat to med low and cook for approx 30 to 45 min or until rice is done.
Stir frequently and if it looks like all the liquid has been absorbed add more water by the 1/4th cup so it doesn't burn, you can also do this if you want it a little more saucy.
When the rice is done add the kidney beans and cook until they are heated through.

Extras: These are not added into the nutritional value: If you find the flavor to be a bit bland you can always add a little more salt, pepper or spice of your choosing, this always helps if I need it. Or, to add more calcium I like to top mine with a little cheddar cheese. Be creative!!

Nutritional value is set to 5 servings
