Jollof rice is a very popular dish in many parts of West Africa and especially in Ghana and Nigeria. The rice is cooked in a spicy tomatoey sauce and so takes on a lovely orange colour. Sweet peppers and onions cooked with cumin, nutmeg and heat from a Scotch bonnet chilli - oh yes now we're talking!
Of course you use an ordinary chilli for less heat, but it just won't taste the same. Cooked in one pot means it's not only nice and easy, but you have less to clear up too - which is a good thing.
