Heat oil in skillet. Add rice until golden and toasted. Add onion and pepper and lightly sautee.
In a blender put salt,garlic, 1/2 cup tomatoes (undrained) and broth. Puree until smooth.
Slowly add liquid mixture to rice. You can drain the rest of the tomatoes and add to the rice if you'd like.
Bring to a boil, cover and turn heat to low. Simmer until rice is tender, about 1 hour. Do not remove lid while rice is simmering! I usually check the rice package, it tells you how long to cook it for.
