“Spanish” Rice

This is a classic from Mom’s kitchen.  She often served it with chicken.

1 onion, finely diced
1/2 bell pepper, finely diced
1 cup of white rice
1/2 cup of tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups water
olive oil and butter

Heat the oil and butter in a heavy bottom saucepan, saute the onion and pepper until soft. Stir in the rice and stir to coat with oil and cook a minute or two.

Stir in the tomato sauce, water and salt. Cover and cook as rice – bring to a boil, them turn the heat to very low and cook until tender about 20 minutes.
