Green Chile Rice

This gorgeous dish dressed up in cilatro-green pairs perfectly with savory grilled meats. If you wish, you can further reduce the amount of sodium by rinsing the chilies in a fine-meshed strainer before adding them to the rice.


Makes 6 servings


1 cup uncooked white rice
1 can (about 14 ounces) fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth plus water to measure 2 cups
1 can (4 ounces) diced mild green chiles
1/2 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
3 green onions, thinly sliced
1/3 to 1/2 cup fresh cilantro


  1. Combine rice, broth, chiles, yellow onion, oregano, salt, if desired, and cumin in large saucepan. Bring to a boil, uncovered, over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 18 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir in green onions and cilantro.
