green chili riceA quick and easy recipe.. It’s no secret Jo and I love our spicy goodness, and it’s certainly no secret that we LOVE green chile. Ever since Jo lived in Albuquerque, green chili has become a new sensation, new obsession, new greatness to our spicy repertoire. And when I made this a few weeks back, I was surprised we hadn’t posted something this simple and delicious already! So here it is..without further ado, a spicy, green chili rice that will serve nicely along any Tex-Mex dish we have posted here 🙂


2 C brown rice
3.25 C water
3/4 C green chile sauce (you can adjust the spicy level by using more green chili and less water; you want a total of 4 C liquid to 2 C rice)
2 TBSP canola or safflower oil
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
salt and pepper, to taste


green chili rice1. In a skillet, heat 2 TBSP canola oil over medium heat. Add in brown rice and lightly saute, a few minutes.

2. Add water, spices, and green chile sauce. Let simmer 45 minutes (or until rice is al dente).

3. Salt and pepper to taste, and serve up! You can sprinkle with some green onion, or even add some onion in at the beginning..depending on your green chile sauce and what’s in it. Another tasty option would be to squeeze a little fresh lime juice on top! 🙂

Happy Cooking!
