Today is a "Western BBQ" here at work. Something fun to do to break up the daily routine. Each department was given food they needed to bring. Our responsibility was to bring rice and beans type dishes. Thankfully, the dear lady that organizes this thing recognizes there are more and more vegetarians at work (yes, some were already here and some are my converts!) so she put on the bulletin to make sure each department brings at least one vegetarian dish.
I wanted something relatively easy but also something I had not tried yet. So, I dug through the McDougall book (one of my favorite books) and found this recipe for Spicy Spanish Rice. It has some green pepper, onion, garlic and a few other seasonings and to give it a kick, a little Tabasco sauce. See the recipe below....
