DIRECTIONS

  • Cut chiles into large pieces. Remove seeds and veins for a milder rice, or leave them in for a much spicier rice. I usually remove seeds but leave veins.
  • In a blender, combine chile pieces, 1/2 cup chicken stock, garlic cloves, cilantro leaves and salt. Blend until smooth. Add more chicken stock if necessary for easier blending.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Saute onion until soft. Add rice and stir for another minute.
  • Pour rice/onion mixture into rice cooker. Add chile puree and remainder of chicken stock. Give a quick stir and set rice cooker to the cook setting.
  • When cooker cycle ends, fluff rice. Some rice may be crusty on the bottom of the cooker pan - this is the tastiest stuff. The rice may need to steam a few extra minutes on the warm cycle until it reaches your desired consistency.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper and lime juice if desired. You can also garnish with sliced green onion.
