A can of southwest corn is the kind of corn you use. That can of southwest corn includes red and poblano peppers. A can of chopped green chilies is also added in to the mix. That adds in flavor along with chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, and cilantro. Fresh cilantro is best to use, but dried will also work if you don’t have any on hand. I used dried when I made this for the post.
Last, you cook this all in chicken broth instead of water. It’s just another way to add in flavor.
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1 cup long grain rice
