"This colorful spicy side dish goes perfect with kabobs, especially with cherry tomatoes; the color combo is most appealing. Lamb is a good accompaniment." — Andi

jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
uncooked long-grain white rice
2 (14.5 ounce) cans

This was amazing. I was afraid my picky husband and son would not eat it, especially with the strong aroma. But they gobbled it up and even went back for seconds. I used brown rice, so I had to cook it for about 45 minutes and then let it rest for another 10-15. In addition to the green onions, I topped it off with cilantro and a few mint leaves. This will be a regular at my house, but as another reviewer suggested, I too would cut the amount in half. My small family liked it, but I'm sure they don't want to eat the leftovers for a whole week.
This was a nice side dish, but nothing too fancy or mind-blowing. My boyfriend said it was good and asked if it was a curry dish. The turmeric gave it the look and flavor of a mild curry dish. There were no rave reviews for the effort. I used it as an accompaniment to Indonesian Satay (on this site). I think it would have been much better with an Indian dish (like Tandoori Chicken as another reviewer mentioned). The Indonesian Satay really should have had a white jasmine rice side dish.
I was looking for a recipe to use jalapenos I stupidly picked up at the farmers' market... stupid because I had no idea what to do with them, they were just pretty. This recipe looked easy and I had all the ingredients. Well, it is delicious! My only change was to use only one jalapeno, since I didn't know how hot they were. Good thing, because one was way enough for us. So good and so easy. I will make this again for sure. I may add peas or something, it just seems like something else of vegetable form would be good.
I left the cinnamon out and incresed the hot peppers to 4. Great flavor!
Smelled wonderful while cooking. Tasted good too! A nice addition to my rotation of side dishes. I'll have to try the tandoori chicken that so many reviewers are talking about. Happy cooking!
I was so impressed how great the rice tasted! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This smells so good when cooking! I used the spray oil instead of vegetable oil, brown rice instead of white rice, and omitted the chicken broth, using water instead. This is delicious!
This was fantastic, followed recipe well left out jalapenos everyone loved it
