Spanish Rice

From Allrecipes
2 T vegetable oil
1 cup uncooked white rice
1 onion, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
2 cups water
1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles (may I suggest using less)
2 teaspoons chili powder (I used about 1/2 teaspoon and it was perfect)
1 teaspoon salt

1.  Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat.  Saute rice, onion, and bell pepper until rice is browned and onions are tender.
2.  Stir in water and tomatoes.  Season with chili powder and salt.  Cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, or until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed.

*This was very good, I used a whole can of diced tomatoes & green chiles and it turned out to be too much for our liking.  Next time I'll try 1/2 a can.  We still ate every bit.  Delicious with Chili-Lime Pork Tenderloin.
