Recipe: Corn and Green Chili Rice

This recipe for corn and green chili rice was adapted from an old Pillsbury recipe and is a pleasant change from the old fries or tater tots as a go-together with burgers.

It’s absolutely perfect wth jalapena burgers.

If you want to add a little more heat to the dish... add a dash of cayenne.. be careful though... I used a heavy hand when I put a dash in mine... it was spicy.. Warren likes things hot... I was not thrilled... so now I use a little lighter hand when adding my dash of cayenne.

The recipe calls for Green Giant Mexicorn... Green Giant also has a "Southwest Corn" which has corn, peppers and black beans in it... you can use that instead... or even add your own black beans... experiment with the flavors you like.

It’s also a great substitute for Spanish rice and will go great with Quesadillas… try my Smoked Turkey Quesadillas and this rice recipe… it’s a terrific meal.

It’s a very easy recipe and one that will be sure to please the family.

I hope you enjoy it!
