Place a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add onion and cumin seeds; cook, stirring constantly, until the onion begins to brown and stick to the bottom of the pan, 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully pour in 1/4 cup of the broth. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the liquid has evaporated and onion is browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Whisk in remaining broth, salsa and tomato paste. Stir in rice and bell pepper and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat and simmer until most of the liquid has been absorbed and rice is just tender, 40 to 45 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve sprinkled with green onions.
