Seasoning mix:
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp black pepper
Rice ingredients:
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped green bell peppers
1/2 cup pecan halves, dry roasted
1/2 cup raisins
4 tbsp unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup uncooked rice
3 cup pork, beef or chicken stock
2 cup chopped unpeeled apples

1.  Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
In 2-quart saucepan, heat the oil over high heat until very hot, about 2 minutes.

2.  Add the onions and bell peppers; saute about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3.  Add the pecans and continue cooking for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the raisins and butter (these are added together so the raisins will absorb as much butter as possible).

4.  Stir until butter is melted, then cook until raisins are plump, about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

5.  Add the rice and seasoning mix and cook until rice starts looking frizzly. This will require about 2 to 3 minutes, stirring almost constantly before the rice looks "frizzly".

6.  Stir in the stock, scraping pan bottom well, then stir in the apples.
Cover pan and bring to boil; lower heat and simmer covered for 5 minutes.

7.  Remove from heat and let sit, covered, until rice is tender and stock is absorbed, about 30 minutes.
