I love Mexican anything, when it comes to food. It has to have alot of flavor since my taste buds don't work well. This is my version of rice I make with my green chili enchiladas or other Mexican dishes. I cook it in my rice cooker for easier preperation. Enjoy!

    When I made this rice to go with my green chili enchiladas last night, I had no green bell pepper..but I usually add it. So the pic shows no pepper.
