  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in rice; cook and stir until rice is lightly browned and gives off a toasted fragrance, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, tomato sauce, green chiles, onion, garlic, salt, cumin, and chili powder. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until rice is tender, about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spread Monterey Jack cheese on top, then replace the lid and allow the cheese to melt, about 5 minutes more.

I used a mixture of EVOO and butter to brown the rice in. I used organic chicken broth in this recipe and I omitted the additional salt called for in this recipe. I cooked this whole recipe in m...

This tasted very authentic to what we get in our local Mexican restaurant. I made exactly as the recipe stated, but, only used 1 tsp of salt based on other reviewer's suggestions. I also left...

This was such a quick dish to whip up last minute and oh so yummy. I made a few changes due to not having exact ingredients on hand. Instead of tomato sauce and green chiles separate, I used a c...

This was good but WAAAAAY too salty. I would definitely suggest cutting it down to 1/2 t of salt to start with. You can always add more but it's hard to take it out :). Otherwise though, I re...

Used this with brown rice and came out really good. Took a little more cooking time.

I agree what another said, waaaaaayyyy to salty. I wish I would've seen that review before I made it. The flavor is fantastic, I will definitely make it again, just without the extra salt.

LOVE LOVE LOVED it!! Made fajitas and this rice for dinner and my husband had thirds and came back for more the next day. DELISH!
