Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; arrange chile peppers cut-side down on top.

  • Roast under the preheated broiler until the skin of the peppers has blackened and blistered, 5 to 8 minutes.

  • Place blackened peppers into a bowl and seal tightly with plastic wrap. Allow peppers to steam as they cool, about 20 minutes. Remove and discard skins. Chop flesh.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and bacon; cook and stir until browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain excess grease. Add onion; cook and stir until golden, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Pour water into the skillet; bring to a boil. Add rice. Reduce heat; simmer until water is absorbed and rice is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Fold in chopped peppers before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can sprinkle cheese on top before serving if desired. I didn't want to lose the roasted hatch chile flavor with the addition of the cheese, so I left it out.

I made this recipe as written and did not like it. After adding Lawry's Seasoned Salt fresh cracked pepper and garlic powder I found that it still needed something else to improve the taste. I then added a can of diced tomatoes a sprinkle of sugar to reduce the acidity of the tomatoes and 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. The addition of all these other ingredients made it edible but not something I would make again. Read More

I love this dish, only changes made....I used half mild sausage and half hot. Definitely gives it that kick! Instead of serving with salad, we always serve with collard greens. YUM :) Read More
