Rice & Green Chile Pilaf
Green Chile Recipes

Can be prepared in less than 45 minutes.  This recipe is adapted from the Epicurious web site.

1 small onion, chopped fine
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/2 - 3/4 cup chopped green chile, thawed and drained
1/2 cup long-grain white rice
3/4 cup low-salt chicken broth
1 green scallion, sliced thin, if desired

In a small heavy saucepan cook onion in oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened. Stir in garlic, chiles, and rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is translucent, about 1 minute. Add broth and salt and pepper to taste and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook pilaf, covered, until liquid is evaporated and rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Fluff pilaf and stir in scallion.

Serves 2.
