Prepare the vegetables
Slice off the ends of the red bell peppers. Remove the seeds inside and rinse off too get any extra seeds out. Slice into thin slices lengthwise.
Slice off the top of the onion and peel away the skin. Cut in half for a large onion then into thin slices. If the onion is smaller you can cut it into thin rings without halving it first.
In a large sautee pan add the olive oil, red bell peppers and onions. Turn the heat to medium high and heat for 10 minutes until the onions become translucent and mixing throughout the cooking process so it cooks evenly and does not burn. If it starts to burn turn the heat down slightly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
While the onions and rice cook chop the rest of the ingredients: green onions, cilantro, avocado and slice the lemons into wedges or rings.
When the rice and peppers are finished cooking assemble a large serving bowl or plate with half of the rice on one side and the beans on the other side. Top in the center with the cooked peppers and onions. Garnish with green onions, fresh cilantro, avocado and a splash of lime. Add salsa or any other toppings of choice. Add any salt and pepper to taste.
