Cook rice according to package directions. Set aside. Melt butter in a 2-quart-size sauce pan; add onions and cook until soft. Cut up tomatoes and pour into the onions. Add green beans, pepper, salt, Tobasco sauce and water. Cover and simmer until green beans are tender (about 5 minutes). If recipe is too dry, add more water. Add the cooked rice, mix and cook about 5 more minutes or until Green Beans are hot and bubbly.
