Rice Cooker Brown Rice and Green Chiles


This is a great reason to dig out your rice cooker! And, it's so worth it! Great flavors, easy to prepare, travels well, and it's a people pleaser!

Wow, that was good. I had made brown rice and wanted to spice it up with some green chilies. <br/>When I read "crowd pleaser" I thought I'd give this a try. Delicious. It is a healthy brown rice dish with sort of a Mexican inspired risotto flair. I will make this often. The extra sharp cheddar I used gave it a nice richness.
