I substituted olive oil, green peppers, and vegetable broth. Added a tablespoon of each of mined garlic and onion for more flavor. Very good recipe. Will make again! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! Cheers Read More

If you cook rice frequently like I do, you know that just by looking at this recipe there is way too much liquid for 1 cup of rice. You need to keep in mind that aside from the 2 cups of chicken broth, you are adding 1 can of green chiles, which adds to the liquid to rice ratio. I made this with all the ingredients except I added and extra 1/2 cup of rice to absorb the extra liquids and it was perfect! of course, if you like sticky rice, then leave the recipe as is.

This had pretty good flavor. I erred on the side of caution and only used 1/2 tsp of pepper, which for me was perfect. The chilies are a nice touch. The rice did turn out kinda sticky and mushy, and I even rinsed my rice before I started (something I always do to get rid of starch). I think the added moisture from the chilies contributed to the wetness of the rice, and I had even removed excess liquid from chilies. If I make this again, I'll definitely cut back on the chicken broth (probably use 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cups instead of 2) and cook for less time (15 mins or so). An easy way to kick up plain rice! Read More

For the first time in my life I cooked rice correctly using this recipe! Making rice seems easy but it actually takes some getting used to for it to come out good. My rice usually is very sticky, gooey, broken and tastes bland. This recipe the rice stays together, and comes out fluffy and perfect! So glad I found this recipe. I will use this from now on. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

Perfect easy side dish. Others suggested adding onion salt and garlic. I was trying to save time and opted to add 1 Tbsp dried chopped onion and 1 tsp garlic salt. I halved the amount of black pepper the recipe called for and was very pleased with the outcome and will use those same substitutions again. Thanks so much for a great recipe! Read More

AMAZING! I love this rice. My husband couldn't get enough of it. Followed the recipe only thing I did different was add more chilies and ground pepper. Other then that it was perfect. I paired this rice with sweet hot mustard chicken thighs (recipe from this site chef john) and with cornbread casserole from this site as well. Will be making again soon. Read More

I added some onion and garlic as was suggested by another reviewer (and because I think onions and garlic make everything better). We loved it! I had brown rice in my cupboard so I used that, and it seemed to take forever to cook, but it was worth the wait! Also, instead of chicken broth, I've been using Better Than Bullion to make my own broth. It adds a lot more flavor than regular canned chicken broth. Great stuff!! Read More
