Here is another wonderful recipe by BJ Gourmet. I love these easy kind of recipes!!

This is an easy one!


3 tbsp vegetable or olive oil

1 large yellow onion, diced

8 stalks celery, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

4 garlic cloves, crushed or minced

2 tsp kosher salt

1 tsp dried oregano

2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp paprika

2 tsp chili powder

2 tsp ground cumin

Three 16-oz cans diced tomatoes (juice and all)

8-10 c cooked rice (I prefer jasmine)

Preheat the oil in deep saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the onion, celery, green pepper and garlic in the oil until tender. Lower the heat if necessary so the garlic doesn't burn.

Add all the seasonings and the cans of diced tomatoes. Lower the heat and cook an additional 3 minutes.

Remove from heat, stir in the cooked rice; its ready to serve.
