Spanish Rice

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.
