Chessy Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Rice

I love making up dishes with rice...they are cheap and simple. Its a great way to use up leftovers you have hanging around.


1 cup rice, uncooked
2 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon creole seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup white cheddar cheese
1 can tomato sauce
1/4 cup roasted red peppers (if using jarred, thoroughly pat them dry)


Cook your rice in the chicken broth with the creole seasoning, cumin and red pepper flakes using your preferred method. I personally place the rice in a pot with some olive oil and toast it. Then I add in the broth and spices, bring it to a boil, cover it and simmer for about 20 minutes.

When your rice it cooked, stir in your tomato sauce, roasted red peppers and cheese. Cook until warmed through.
