1 Garlic Clove, minced or crushed

Heat iron in a large pan such as a cast iron chicken fryer or skillet. Add dry rice and cook on medium heat until rice appears chalky and a little brown (tan). Do not get too brown or it will become bitter.

Add onions and bell peppers and sautee for 1-2 minutes. Onions do not have to become clear. Add undiluted tomato puree and one can of water.
