One dish meals are just the best. Since I can be a disaster in the kitchen when it comes to using way more dishes than necessary, scaling back to making everything in one dish is a welcome reprieve from the mountain of dishes I normally stare at when I am finished cooking. Knowing that, when I saw this recipe from Cookie Monster Cooking, I couldn't wait to try it. Hearty brown rice, bell peppers, diced tomatoes, corn, and some Mexican spices come together for a delicious and satisfying dish.
One important note about the recipe, make sure to pay attention to what kind of rice you are using and adjust accordingly. I used uncooked, raw brown rice from the bulk bins which takes about 4 cups of broth per 1 cup of rice and cooks in 30-40 minutes. If you use a quick rice, you will need less broth and it will cook more quickly. Some other rice may take longer. Just adjust based on the cooking instructions included with the rice package.

For a quicker meal, use quick cooking brown rice and reduce the amount of vegetable broth by half or according to package directions. Also since there are many different types of rice available, consider adjusting the amount of liquid and cooking time to match the instructions included with the rice.
