    PaulaG's Note:

    This is a local dish. Central Cafe is a nice little restaurant and this recipe comes from Seasoned with Sun. A wonderful cookbook by the Junior Leage of El Paso. I made a few changes..of course! The original recipe calls for long grain rice and long green chiles, roasted and peeled. You can make it their way or mine, your choice.

      Good side dish!! Flavor and texture meshed well with my entree - flounder meuniere. Also, first time I had baked my rice - provided great lightness to the dish. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

      Outstanding! Blended in perfectly with the chicken fajitas and ranch beans we had for dinner. Thanks for a keeper!

      I loved it!!! My oven was in use, so after sauteing, I put it in my rice cooker. I think I used about 1-1/2 cups stock. Next time I might add some ginger too! For ZWTIII.
