Smoky Orange Rice - Rice Cooker

Total Time
10 mins
20 mins

This is so easy and has a light taste from the orange butter and smokiness from the chipotle butter. I make these compound butters and then freeze them for when I need them. Can be made stove top as well adjust water. This would be great accompaniment for things like General Tso's Chicken, Under a plate of smoky black beans, grilled fish ....
