Mama Chai's Red Rice
Raeann M. Leon Guerrero, Class of 2001, as printed in "What's Cookin: Academy of Our Lady of Guam Cookbook"

1 stalk celery, minced
1/2 green bell pepper, minced
1/2 onion, minced
1/3 cup salad oil
5 cups rice, uncooked
Achote seeds
Salt to taste

Saute onions, celery, bell peppers until translucent, set aside. Rinse rice until clear and set aside. Soak achote seeds in water with 1/2 tsp salt. To extract coloring from achote seeds rub seeds with your fingers then strain to remove seeds. Add achote water to 5 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add rice and bring to boil again. Stir and reduce heat to medium-low then cover with a well fitting lid. Cook until water is absorbed and rice is done.

Remove rice from stove and add the sauteed vegetables and salad oil mixing well. Add salt to taste.
