Updated May 16, 2005

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked regular rice
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 small green bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Steps

  • 1
    Cook rice and onion in oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is golden brown and onion is tender.

    Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Out of garlic powder? If you have garlic salt on hand, use it instead. Decrease regular salt to 1/2 teaspoon, adding more if needed when the dish is done.
  • tip 2
    Turn this great side dish into an easy main dish by adding a pound of ground beef, sausage or turkey, cooked and crumbled.
