Southwestern Rice

I got a rice cooker for Christmas and I’ve been experimenting around with it beyond just making white rice. Tonight I looked up some rice cooker recipes so I could do an all-in-one dish. I ended up finding quite a few on ricecookerfetish.com including one for an American SW style Rice dish.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1.5 cups white rice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 15oz black beans, drained
  • 10oz diced tomatoes with chiles
  • 10oz corn, drained
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)

Method:

Put approx 1/4 of chopped onions and green peppers to the side. Put all ingredients except for the beans, corn, and set aside onions and peppers into the rice cooker and cook. Stir in beans and corn and serve, garnishing with uncooked onion and pepper.

Notes: this barely fits in a 3 cup rice cooker for the initial cook, a 5 cup would be better allowing you to mix in the cooker.
