Spicy Chipotle Rice
The combined flavors of bacon and spicy-smoky chipotle chiles make this a side dish that demands second helpings.
6 slices bacon, diced
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 cups long grain rice
3 (14.5-ounce) can chicken broth
1/2 cup water
3 chipotle chiles in adobe sauce (about 1/4 of a 7-ounce can), diced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 green onions, chopped, some green tops included
- In deep, heavy saucepan sauté bacon with onion until onion is slightly tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in rice; cook and stir to coat well. Add chicken broth, water, chiles and salt. Bring to a boil; cover, lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
- Remove from heat and fluff gently with fork. Garnish with cilantro and green onion.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
