  1. Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium high heat. Cook onions and bell peppers until lightly browned and tender, stirring in garlic when almost done to prevent burning. Stir in tomatoes, vegetable stock, pepper, and chili powder. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  2. Stir in rice, cover, and simmer another fifteen minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in peanut butter until well blended, and serve.

The five-star rating is for the inspiration. I'd never have thought of making this had I not come across this recipe. However, like many, I did make my own changes to give it more flavor. I ad...

Wow -- this was my favorite new recipe I have tried recently. Both my husband and I loved it! I added the rice earlier and cooked it longer afterwards.
