  • 1  finely chopped small onion
  • 1/2  cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2  cup green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2  teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4  teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon cayenne pepper
Directions:
  1. In a large skillet, cook onions and bell pepper in olive oil about 5 minutes.
  2. Add chopped garlic, continue cooking about 5 minutes.
  3. Add rice and cook 2 more minutes.
  4. Add roasted garlic chicken broth, and remaining seasons.
