Portuguese Tomato rice

Have not been posting my 'masterpieces' lately due to house moving and went for my holiday in Europe.

We had a good authentic Portuguese meal in Lisbon and until now we still miss that meal a lot, we loved it so much till we went back there 3 times.
In order to satisfy the crave that i have for that meal especially the rice, it was the best rice i have ever tasted i would say (my hubby agreed too) i decided to search for the recipe and i found one that is by Emeril Lagasse and had a little twist on it and it turned out beautiful.

• 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
