  • 1 cup* rice white, long grain
  • 2 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 3 oz. tomato paste half of a 6 oz. can
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper diced**
  • 1-2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1- 4 oz. can diced green chiles mild
  • pepper to taste
  • pinch of red pepper flakes or more, to taste



  • Throw all ingredients in a rice cooker. Give a good stir.
  • Turn on rice cooker and cook according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • When rice cooker turns off, let sit for a few more minutes, with the lid on.
  • Fluff with a fork and serve!


*Do not use the rice cooker supplied scoop, use a TRUE one cup measuring tool. (Same with broth).
**I didn't have the green bell pepper on hand, but I wish I had, because it adds a great, green color to the dish. This ingredient is mainly for aesthetics. (Some brands of canned green chiles tend to be pale in color, and lighten even more after cooking).
