Chipotle Chicken with Spanish Rice
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
Why make and rate a spicy, with rice recipe if your family doesn't eat spicy food or aren't big rice eaters? Boggles the mind!
This was simple and relatively quick to prepare. Hearty, tasty and economical with enough of a Mexican bent to appeal to us. Did not use 2 boxes of rice (!!) and had more than enough with one. Have been trying to find a recipe that will help me like boneless, skinless chicken thighs more...this didn't quite do it for me but the family thought it was a great Monday night dinner.
Very good! I had to change up the recipe. I'm sorry. I have wimpy family members that will not eat spicy, so I had to tone this down. I am sure I would have loved it as written, but for the people that like milder dinners, here goes. I replaced the poblano chili with a can of Ortega 4 ounce diced mild green chili peppers. I didn't have Mexican cheese blend, but I had Colby Jack that I shredded. Only did one box of Near East (the best) Spanish Rice Pilaf, since we aren't big rice eaters. I will make this again!!! For those of you who complain that people rate recipes that they have changed, this was done because I knew my family wouldn't eat it as written. I would have, but they won't!!!!
Made this last night. Didn't change anything. Will definitely make this again. I used the Spanish Near East Rice. Heat was just right, but next time I might add a little more. We like spicey. Great Recipe!!
Simple ingredients and execution add up to a good quick preparation meal. I like it as a work day lunch.
Absolutely fantastic! Would not change a thing. Spice level was just right.
Way too hot. I was so excited to make it, and I tossed it all.
Love the smokiness that the Chipotle gives this chicken and thighs are my favorite cut. Love that it is super easy to whip up. Worth giving it a try.
Loved this recipe. My husband and I aren't fond of black beans plus I had several cans of pinto beans so I used them instead and this was delicious. I've never cooked with chipotle peppers before and I wondered whether just the one was going to be enough but the heat was perfect and the smoky flavor from the adobo sauce was wonderful. I served it with a salad of cucumbers, tomatoes, onions and bell pepper, which was a very refreshing, cooling accompaniment. I will definitely be making this one again, and again.
Very good and very simple
