Zippy Skillet Rice Recipe

Publisher Photo
Tomatoes, pimientos and green pepper add festive color to this zippy rice side dish. It complements just about any meat but is particularly good with chicken. To turn the recipe into a main dish for a light supper, just add 3/4 pound of browned ground beef. -Dorothy Bateman, Carver, Massachusetts
