Jollof Rice

Jollof rice is a Nigerian delicacy. There are many variations of Jollof rice, but the most common basic ingredients include rice, tomatoes and tomato paste, onions, salt, and hot red pepper. Beyond that, nearly any kind of meat, vegetable, or spice can be added. The food was probably named after the Wolof's kingdom, The Jollof Empire.
