chile relleno rice

This was the first thing I have made in a few days…hubby has been cooking grilling lately, because-well I just haven’t wanted to do much of anything. I did, however go through one of my new cookbooks “Tyler Florence Family Meal” and that’s where I found this.

It’s a no-brainer recipe.

And it is a keeper. So, I’m glad I can share my version with you.

Please excuse the pictures. Honestly- I jst snapped a few in case it would be good, so I would remember to share it. Because lately, I can’t remember much of anything.

I want to get back to my old joke cracking self.

Maybe fostering a old dog or hamster will help. Yes, there is a hamster at our local pound. It’s a boy.  Isn’t that weird? I was online looking at all the homeless animals, and under the “other” category there was a hamster. Which, brought to mind an image in my head of a dog catcher with a big net chasing a hamster….which I am sure didn’t happen; but it was a mental picture I had.

Back to rice.

This is a great use for leftover rice.

and, if you are like me… I buy the econo-can of diced green chilies.

I had to weigh out 14 oz.

literally, this dish takes about 4 minutes to make. Then you bake it- but there’s no work once it’s in the oven.

…perfect for chilly nights.
