spicy spanish rice

Recipe by

I actually combined ingredients from 3 different recipes to make this. Unstuffed Pepper Casserole, Stuffed Peppers & Spanish rice, from this site. When I served it with a salad to my husband last night, he said "I'll just have the salad". He finally took a bite, & ended up going back for seconds! LOL! Thanks for the inspiration! I think we found a winner! I will add pics next time I make this.
