Spicy Chipotle Rice

No recipe image available.The combined flavors of bacon and spicy-smoky chipotle chiles make this a side dish that demands second helpings.

Recipe Ingredients:

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

Cooking Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Remove from heat and fluff gently with fork. Garnish with cilantro and green onion.

Makes 10 to 12 servings.
