Chipotle peppers and creamy cheese are at it again for a dish loaded with flavors that complement each other so perfectly you’ll be wanting to make this rice on repeat!
It all starts with onion and garlic sautéed in butter mixed in with the chipotle peppers in adobo seasoning, which are key to developing the base of this rice dish. The next step is cooking the white rice until it is well coated in the skillet ingredients, the cream and broth are poured in to let that simmer for great depth of flavor. Then add the extra finishing touches that take this dish over the top — the added cream cheese and shredded Monterey jack with zesty lime.
Pair this tasty rice with grilled chicken, steak or hearty beans for a bit of protein at your next BBQ or potluck event.
Use it to fill your favorite burritos, quesadillas or alongside your tacos on Taco Tuesday.
