    FloridaNative's Note:

    Simple and delicious, this dish makes use of highly aromatic peppers, adding a level of sophistication to even the simplest of meals. When making this dish, use the habañero pepper whole if you want less heat, and dice it if you like more heat. Since habañero peppers are immensely hot, you cook with them to flavor the rice, but most palates are uncomfortable eating these peppers whole. From

      Loved it! I made it in the rice cooker and added one whole orange haba?ero pepper. The rice had a subtle, almost floral pepper flavour that went wonderful with my sweet butternut squash. I may use two the next time, I just didn't want to overdo it because these little buggers are hot!!! Made and reviewed for PAC Fall 2012.
