Spanish Rice

1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 cups uncooked rice
1 bell pepper, chopped
12 oz can tomato sauce
1 tsp cayenne pepper
salt & pepper to taste
Mexican Cheese blend to sprinkle on top (optional)

Add oil to non stick pan. Heat to medium heat. Saute onions and pepper. Add rice. Brown rice. Add salt and pepper. Remove from heat and add tomato sauce along with enough water to cover the rice completely. Stir and return to heat. Bring to boil. Put lid on pan. Lower heat to simmer and let simmer for 15 mins. Turn off heat, stir and replace lid on pan. Let the rice stand for 15 more minutes. Do not remove cover. After 15 mins, separate with a fork. Sprinkle mexican cheese on top and enjoy with your favorite mexican/spanish dish!

Optional: you can add corn, beans or jalapenos to this mixture also. I have made different variations. Post any comments/questions!
