Ingredients

  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 1 pound Mexican-style chorizo
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1 cup frozen corn, defrosted
  • chopped fresh cilantro, optional
  • Chipotle flavored TABASCO Sauce, optional

Instructions

  • Bring chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in rice, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add chorizo to a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Use a wooden spoon to break it into small pieces. Once partially cooked, add onion and garlic and continue to cook until chorizo is cooked through and onion is soft.
  • Add tomatoes and corn to the chorizo and let simmer for about 5 minutes to cook off some of the liquid.
  • Stir in rice. Serve with cilantro and TABASCO if desired.
