Expert Tips

  • Montreal seasoning can be found with the other spices in the baking section of the grocery store. It is a salt and pepper mixture with other herbs and spices added.
  • Since instant rice is precooked, it's the best option when adding rice to this slow-cooker recipe.
  • Use a combination of red, yellow, orange and green bell peppers for variation in color and flavor.
