Instead of using chicken broth, use juice of the canned tomatoes, and water/vegetable broth. If you want more depth add a whole dry bayleaf and use white pepper..Make it tomato/bell pepper rice, by simply adding chunks of bell pepper(5 minutes before done), or use fresh mushrooms instead (saute along with onion).
