Festive Rice Medley

Festive Rice Medley

From: Taste of Home Simple and Delicious Cookbook

1 1/2 cups uncooked instant rice (I use regular rice unless I'm in a super big hurry)
1/4 cup sweet red pepper, chopped
1/4 cup sweet yellow pepper chopped
2 tsp. canola oil
2 Tbs. fresh cilantro, minced
2 Tbs. green onions, chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. paprika, optional

Cook rice according to package directions. In a large skillet, saute the peppers in oil for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add the cilantro, onion, garlic and salt. Stir in the rice and paprika if desired. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
