Sazón Rice

2 Tbs olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces and browned*
14 oz canned tomato, diced (or whole and chopped)
2 cups rice, uncooked (I used long grain white but any variety will do)
4 cups chicken broth
1 envelope Sazón seasoning (I use con azafran – with saffron)

In a large pot (or flat bottom wok), sauté onion and pepper in olive oil until transparent (you can use some of the chicken fat in place of the olive oil if you are using the same pot in which you browned the chicken). Add garlic and cook for about a minute more. Add chicken, tomato and uncooked rice. Mix together and let the tomato juices cook down for about a minute. Add chicken broth and Sazón and stir. Bring to a boil, cover, and turn down heat. Simmer for approximately 10 to 15 minutes or until rice has absorbed most of the liquid. Serve and enjoy!

*Meat or shrimp work well too.
