Preheat oven to 350. In a 9 qt Dutch oven melt the butter then sauté the onions and green peppers. Add the tomato paste and garlic and cook until it darkens slightly. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Cover and place in the over. Stir every 15 minutes. Remove when all liquids are absorbed and rice is done. Usually takes about an hour.
