- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
- Add the onion and cook until translucent, 3-4 minutes.
- Add the garlic and cook for about 2 minutes until it is fragrant.
- Add the yellow bell peppers, red bell peppers, and green beans. Cook stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until tender.
- Add the rice, smoked paprika, sweet paprika, tomato paste, salt, and pepper. Stir until incorporated. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the rice starts to sizzle.
