1 1/2 cups, long grain Rice
2 1/2-3 cups, or chicken stock Water

|In a deep, heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and saute the onions until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the chili pepper and the rice. Stir for a few seconds to coat with oil.
In the meantime, heat the water or stock with the spinach in a separate saucepan. When starts to boil, pour it over the rice and reduce the heat.
