Spicy Fried Rice

Lovely Meal

This is a great way of using leftover cooked rice.

You can throw in as many ingredients as you like, from a few chopped onions and peppers to make it a side dish to fish or meat, or you can go the whole hog as in the recipe below and add beans and cooked ham or chorizo to make it a full meal in itself.



Preparation Time:  15 Minutes
Cooking Time:  15 minutes

2 cups cooked white rice 2 oz spicy chorizo, diced
1/2  onion, chopped 1/2 tin tomatoes
1/2 red pepper, chopped 1/2 tin kidney beans
1/2 green pepper, chopped 1 chicken stock cube, crumbled
2 cloves garlic, crushed  Hot pepper sauce, to taste
2 slices smoked bacon, diced  


Heat some cooking oil in a large frying pan, add the onions and peppers and stir fry until just soft. Add the bacon and chorizo and stir until the fat has come out of the chorizo and the bacon is cooked. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and continue cooking for a few more minutes, adding a little water if the mixture becomes too dry. Add salt and pepper, and more hot pepper sauce if required.

Goes well with a green salad and some crusty bread.
