Green Chile Rice is the perfect side dish for all of your favorite Mexican dishes. A delicious combination of green chilies, cilantro, and lime.
When you have blogged as long as I have (over ten years) you lose track of recipes you posted years and years ago. Sometimes you even forget what recipes you have posted and you post them again, forgetting they are already on the blog! And sometimes, recipes just disappear from the blog. I haven’t quite figured out how that one happens but today’s recipe is one of those.
I am almost positive I posted this family favorite years ago, but when I went to look for it, it wasn’t there. Since I rely on my blog for copies of my recipes I didn’t have any other copy so I had to text my niece Emily to see if she had a copy of it, fortunately she did!
This rice is the perfect side dish to just about any Mexican entree. It is a nice alternative to traditional Mexican Rice or Cilantro Lime Rice.
It is also delicious with any grilled meat, chicken, beef or pork. One of my favorite things about it is how easy it is to make. It is actually baked in the oven!
Just put all the ingredients, rice, chicken broth, green onion, lime juice, onion, cilantro, seasonings and of course, green chilies into a 9 x 13 pan and bake for an hour for 350 degrees F. After it’s done, give it a stir and a fluff and it’s ready to serve.
This Green Chile Rice is sure to become a favorite at your house too.
