Fiery Chipotle Rice and Sausage

Total Time
Prep 30 mins

This came from a Cooking Light edition of unknown year. It is SOO good, and so easy, that it will become one of your frequent repeats, BEWARE ! 1 chipotle will likely be plenty, unless you have an asbestos tongue ! Be CERTAIN to allow the 10 minutes standing time necessary for the rice to soak up the flavorful juices,

This is from the March 2001 issue of Cooking Light and it's tasty. A second chipotle makes it very spicy.

This is a good recipe with tons of flavor. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I think next time I will use the whole 14.5 ounces of beef broth so that the rice is a little softer and fluffier. Made for January, 2008 Aussie/NZ Swap.
