1 cup uncooked rice
1 medium onion, chopped (I like onions so I used a large one)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
2 1/2 cups water
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.
Add rice and onion and cook (about 5-10 minutes) stirring occasionally, until rice is golden brown and onion is tender.
Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender.
