Recipe by Galley Wench
Original recipes comes from The Complete Book of Mexican Cooking, however I've made some adjustments (of course)! I prefer the roasted chiles but fresh chopped chiles can be used. If a smooth texture rice is preferred see note at bottom of instructions.

I used 1 can of Rotel tomatoes, drained, in place of the chilies, for a milder flavors to suit all of us here. The tomatoes were an added bonus in this recipe and we really loved it on the side with burritos and tacos. Gracious!
