This dish makes the perfect side dish to tacos, burritos or enchiladas. We really enjoy the green chiles with smoked paprika. It gives this rice dish a smoky taste that my family loves. This rice reheats well and the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. It takes no time to prepare and it’s great for any weeknight dinner.

  1. I stumbled upon this recipe while perusing your site and had plans to make enchiladas and refried beans. This was such a delicious addition to our family meal! I normally don’t cook white rice & use brown to keep the carbs down but I happened to have exactly 4 cups of leftover rice to make this with. I am definitely going to try it with brown rice in the future!5 stars

  2. If you wanted to make this a one dish meal, do you think you could add browned ground chuck to it. If so, would you need to add more liquid?

    1. I think that would be a great addition and I don’t think you would need more liquid.

  3. This has quickly become one of our favorite dishes. I find myself making it almost every week. I have enjoyed every recipe I’ve made from your site. Thank you!5 stars

  4. Do you think this would work using Minute Rice? I don’t always have good luck using regular rice for some reason.
