uncooked long-grain rice
2 1/2 cups
1 (4 ounce) can
diced green chiles, drained
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
sliced ripe olives
1/2 (4 ounce) jar
diced pimento peppers, drained
chopped fresh parsley
This is great rice! Yummy! I omitted the olives and cheese (I guess you could sprinkle some cheese over your serving to melt but I just didn't think it needed it) and used a whole jar of diced pimentos. Very colorful and very tasty! This will accompany many maindishes in the future! Thanks Michele!
We liked this pretty much - I didn't actually like it as much as I thought I would, given the ingredients. Maybe it didn't have enough flavor for my taste. I did leave out the olives, because we don't like them, so maybe they add the missing flavor. This recipe also made a ton! Way more than 6 servings for us, so we got tired of eating it over and over. I would still make it again, though, in a smaller quantity.
I just made this chessy rice, i browned the rice w/ onion, gpepper,and garlic.i ommitted the olives and palmentto. A slice of american cheese& a handfull of italian cheese made this dish very good. i will make this more often.
This was very good. I did add more green chili peppers because I love them. I also added garlic powder.
We really enjoyed this...very creamy & tasty.
Oh MY! This was delicious, yummy, tasty, and really looks good too. Very colorful, makes a great presentation both in taste and sight! I will make this again! I followed the recipe entirely, but didn't have pimentoes, so used roasted jarred red peppers. No monterey either, just some four cheese shredded mix. Super super super!
Scaled the recipe to make half & made it as written. It was very good.
Really liked this, was looking for something different to serve along side my flounder.I browned the rice in butter then put in a bowl with the water and chicken bouillon, microwaved on high for 20 min.In same pan brown onions, garlic, half a green bell pepper. Stir the rest of ingredients into the bowl of rice. This was really good and different.
