Fajitas are a quick dinner, easy to make, and fairly healthy (depending, of course, on how much sour cream and cheese one slathers on). Side dishes, however, can be problematic. The sam-o gets boring after a while, so I went with something new tonight and made Spanish Rice. I don't actually eat rice but everyone else in my family does. Although I did taste this dish and it was pretty good.
Saute chopped green peppers, onions, and garlic until soft (can add chopped jalapeno to taste). Add 1 cup of rice and cook until browned. Add 1 can of low sodium chicken broth (15 oz) and 1 can of diced tomatoes with chilies, including the juice, a pinch of chili powder and cumin. Bring to low boil, turn down to simmer. Stirring every ten minutes for 30 minutes.
