Spanish Rice

This works nicely alongside the Chicken Enchiladas.
4 tablespoons oil
2 cups uncooked rice
1 onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
3-3/4 cups water
2 (10 can) cans diced tomatoes and green chiles or stewed tomatoes
2 tablespoons chili powder

In a medium-sized Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onions and bell pepper for about 5 minutes. Add rice and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add water, tomatoes and chili powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for about ½ hour or until rice is soft and water is absorbed.
