I had been wanting to play with the vinegars that I put together earlier this year. The onion and pepper vinegar is bookmarked for some heavy use. Tonight I made this Spanish Rice for dinner, it is delicious. Vinegar is such a flavor enhancer. Yes it can be sour, but if used correctly is is wonderful.
There are several recipes in the booklet that I plan on making. Tonight we started with the Spanish Rice.

It is not real pretty, but it is soooo tasty!
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion
1 green pepper roasted*, seeded and diced
1 red pepper roasted*, seeded and diced
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
3 T vinegar** - I used the peppers and onion style
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 c rice
1 c water
Brown the beef and onion in a dutch oven, drain excess fat. Stir in all remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
Serves 4 - 6
* roasting the peppers is essential to the flavor of this dish, worth the extra time.
** You could substitute red wine vinegar with good results.
As always thanks so much for stopping by.
I appreciate your time and your comments.
