Mexican Rice

1 Cup rice
olive oil
1/2 large onion, chopped fine
1 clove garlic, mashed with a little salt
1 (12-14 oz.) can tomatoes
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1-2 jalepenos, minced (with or without seeds, depending on heat you like)
1 (4 oz.) can of chopped green chiles
plenty of black pepper

Saute the rice, onion and garlic in a little oil until the onion is soft. Put the tomatoes in a big measuring cup and squish them into pieces. You need about 3-1/2 cups of liquid, so add water to the tomatoes til you get this amount. Bring to a boil, add the bell pepper, hot pepper and chiles. Cover and cook 15-20 minutes. Taste for black pepper.
