    Galley Wench's Note:

    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!

      Oh my! Quite delicioso! My advise is insisting on using poblano peppers in this since the flavor is so so so good. The rice as prepared was nice and fluffy and had the perfect proportion of cilantro. It was the first thing gone from my plate, and happily so. Made by a Saucy Senorita for ZWT5. Thanks for sharing!!!
