  1. To prepare the rice: In a large saucepan, combine diced tomatoes with juice, water, and a few dashes of hot pepper sauce. (Note: there should be at least 1 cup of juice from the canned tomatoes or 2 cups of total liquid) Add the rice. Reduce heat and cook until the rice is cooked; approximately 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand.
  2. To prepare the salsa: Heat canola oil in non-stick wok or skillet with garlic. Add chili powder, about 3 dashes of hot red pepper sauce, peppers, cilantro, tomato, and celery. Stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes. Add lime juice. Heat thoroughly. Serve over bed of rice.

I am torn with this one...the rice itself was pretty basic (I used spicy tomatoes from the can and that helped considerably) and I found the salsa to be pretty darn good...but the two mixed together really weren't spectacular. I ended up using the salsa with some chips and will be eating the rice either wrapped up in a tortilla with other ingredients or adding something to liven it up. Thank you for the recipe, because again, I thought the salsa was pret-ty good!

This recipe was very easy to make but didn't have all that much flavor. The peppers on top didn't really add anything to your typical Spanish rice recipe. I have a lot of leftovers so I'll be eating it again but I won't be cooking it again.

Excellent meal, could add some chorizo sausage/shrimp and call it paella! If too spicy would take out some of the chili powder.
