Saute onion and green pepper and after lightly cooked. Then, add the rest and stir. Let come to a boil. Stir again and reduce to low flame; cover with tight lid. Stir frequently (about every 10 minutes) and as rice absorbs the water you will have to add more water. About 1/4 cup at a time, up to 1/2 cup. Be sure to stir to get the bottom up and onto the top. Takes about 45 minutes of simmering time.
