How to Make a Spanish Rice

Making your own rice is a great option if you are watching your sodium. Tomatoes, spices and veggies is all it takes to make this easy, healthy recipe.

Directions
1. 
In a large saucepan, cook onion and garlic in oil over medium heat until onion is tender, about 5 min. Stir in broth and bring to a boil; add rice, oregano, black pepper, salt and paprika. Simmer, covered, about 40 min or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat and stir in tomatoes, corn and cilantro.
2. 
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice 1/2 inch off tops of bell peppers and set aside; remove seeds. In a baking dish, arrange peppers in a single layer and fill each with rice; cover with pepper tops. Tent peppers with foil and bake until just tender and rice is heated through, about 30 min. Makes 8 servings.
