  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 3 cups rice
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can sweet corn
  • 2 cubes chicken flavor bouillon


  • In a cast iron pot over medium-high heat, bring to boil water, salt and 2 tablespoons of oil.
  • When water is boiling, add the rice stirring occasionally to avoid the rice from sticking at the bottom of the pot. Once the rice has soaked up all the water and begins to dry up, lower the heat to low, cover and let cook for 20 minutes.
  • Then, stir the rice carefully and cover for another 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, heat the rest of the oil in a separate pan. Add the onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, corn, and chicken bouillon. Cook until onion has become translucent, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Remove pan from the heat and add vegetables to the pot of rice. Stir to combine.
  • Cover the rice. Let cook and soak in all the vegetables' flavor for an additional 5 minutes. Turn off the heat.
  • Serve warm with your favorite meat dish.
