  • 1 red or green pepper, chopped into chunky pieces

  2. While rice cooks, put oil in large nonstick skillet. Add onion and pepper, and cook until slighly tender.
  3. Add tomatoes, cayenne and shrimp, and cook on low heat until shrimp are warmed through.
  4. Serve resulting glop on rice.

Variations:
