“I love this dish....it was always something that we ate back home (Nigeria). I made the recipe to be very spicy but feel free to use half of the pepper or no pepper at all if you are not used to spicy foods”

  3. Add the onions and stir with black pepper for one minute.
  4. Add diced tomatoes, habaneros, and coconut milk with the sea salt and cover to cook for about 7 minutes (or when the mixture comes to a boil).
  5. Add the rice and stir and cover for about 7 minutes (or when the rice is almost dry).
  6. Add the green peppers and let simmer until the rice has absorbed all the juices.
  7. Enjoy!
