  1. Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir rice in hot oil until coated; add green chiles and continue cooking until rice begins to brown lightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Season rice with pepper. Pour broth into the saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, place cover on the saucepan, and cook until the broth is absorbed and the rice tender, about 20 minutes.

This had pretty good flavor. I erred on the side of caution and only used 1/2 tsp of pepper, which for me was perfect. The chilies are a nice touch. The rice did turn out kinda sticky and mushy, and I even rinsed my rice before I started (something I always do to get rid of starch). I think the added moisture from the chilies contributed to the wetness of the rice, and I had even removed excess liquid from chilies. If I make this again, I'll definitely cut back on the chicken broth (probably use 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cups instead of 2) and cook for less time (15 mins or so). An easy way to kick up plain rice!
