(Green Rice)

| August/September 1998

  • Joe Coca

Serves 6

Serve this tasty rice as a simple side dish, dressed up with additional roasted chili peppers, or layered in a casserole with grated Monterey Jack cheese, chiles, sour cream, and corn.

• 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
• 2 tablespoons canola oil
• 1 bunch green onions, chopped
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 4 or more green Anaheim, New Mexico, or poblano chiles, roasted, peeled, and seeded
• 1/2 white onion, chopped
• 1 cup cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped
• 3 cups chicken broth (see page 24)
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• Cilantro sprigs for garnish

1. In a heavy pot over medium heat, sauté the rice in the oil for 6 minutes, or until barely golden. Add the green onion and garlic and cook for another minute, stirring occasionally.

2. Puree the chiles, onion, cilantro, and half the broth in a blender and add it with the salt and remaining broth to the rice. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Let the rice stand off heat for 5 minutes.

3. Garnish with the cilantro sprigs.
