Spanish Fried Rice

My take on the Spanish fried rice.

1 cup parboiled rice
1 red bell pepper
1 small onion
1 cup spaghetti sauce
2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
dash of hot sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil, for cooking
shredded cheddar cheese, optional

1. Heat a large skillet with olive oil. Once medium hot, fry the garlic until fragrant.
2. Chop the bell pepper and onion into small cubes. Fry for about 2 minutes. Then toss in the rice, cook for another 2 minutes.
3. Mix the chicken broth, spaghetti sauce, salt, black pepper, basil, oregano, and hot sauce in a large bowl. When the rice is ready, pour the chicken broth mixture into the skillet. Place a lid over and cook for 15 minutes, or until the rice is soft. If the rice is still dry, add more chicken broth or water.
4. Serve with shredded cheddar cheese on top.
