Cheesy Fiesta Rice

I made this recipe at our Church get-together for Cinco-De-Mayo and people are STILL asking, more like begging for this recipe! It's delicious.


1 Tbsp marg/butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 1/4 cup long grain rice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 cans (14.5oz) chicken broth
4 oz can of diced green chilies
1 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Melt marg or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and rice, cook 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently.

Stir in salt, chili powder, chicken broth and green chillies. Bring to boil, Cover and reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in cheese and tomato. Garnish with cilantro.

You can also add uncooked chicken breasts at the beginning to make this a main dish.

This recipe can be made gluten free.. as long as you use a GF chicken broth

The recipe came from my dear friend Cambrea's kitchen... LOVE IT!
