Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • ½ large whole green bell pepper (rinsed & diced)
  • 3 small whole red bell peppers (rinsed & diced)
  • 3 small whole yellow bell peppers (rinsed & diced)
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 bag frozen corn (15 oz. bag works)
  • 1 bag microwaveable rice
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. coriander
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 dash of salt & pepper
  • 1 dash fresh parsley
Method
  1. Cook the rice according to the directions on the package. We use frozen rice that we can steam in the bag to make it quick and easy.
  2. In a medium-sized skillet, sauté the peppers in the water over medium-high heat, for five minutes. Add the corn and spices and continue cooking for another five minutes, stirring often.
  3. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir the rice in well before adding salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with chopped parsley if you choose.
