    4      Cups          Chicken broth

 * Long narrow yellow peppers such as guero, x-ca-tic, or hot hungarian wax.
 ** Blended, in a blender, with 1 cup of the chicken broth. In a large
 skillet or saucepan, heat the oil, and add the garlic. When it turns a
 golden color, add the rice, and stir well until the rice also turns a
 golden color. Add the onion and the peppers (remove stems) and saute an
 additional 3 minutes. Add the blended tomato. When the mixture comes to a
 boil, add the remaining chicken broth. Then add all other ingredients.
 After the mixture comes to a boil, mix one more time, cover, and lower to a
 simmer. When all liquid is absorbed, remove bay leaf and serve.
