Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound salt pork, finely diced
  • 1 small red pepper, diced
  • 1 small green pepper, diced
  • 1 rib celery, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 2 cups crushed, canned whole tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

Heat a large heavy-bottomed saucepan and cook the salt pork over medium-high heat until crisp. Add the red and green peppers, celery, onion, and garlic and cook 3 to 4 minutes.
