    Very interesting! Sweet and cuminy! I wussed out on the chile peppers (just used 4 dried Tabasco chiles) but I wish I'd put in the fresh chiles. I used medium-grain brown rice, and the grains never really separated out. Long-grain rice would work better, and I think basmati would taste great with this. Tofu in place of the grilled chicken would be good, too! If I make it again I'll add the bell pepper later; by the time the onions were browning, the pepper had lost a lot of its color and flavor, and in the end it was too mushy for my taste.
