    2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice
    3/4 cup onion, chopped
    1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
    1 green pepper, chopped
    14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 tsp chili powder
    1/4 tsp cumin
    4 cups vegetable broth


In a large skillet, on medium-high heat, combine oil, green pepper, rice, onion, garlic, seasonings, salt and pepper until the rice is a light brown color. Remove skillet from stove.
Mix tomatoes into the mixture and pour in broth. Return the skillet to the stovetop and bring the mixture to a full boil. When the mixture begins to boil, cover the skillet, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook 12 to 15 minutes and NEVER remove the cover. This step is pertinent. After 12 to 15 minutes, turn stove off and let stand for another 12 to 15 minutes. DO NOT remove cover until the time is up!
