  • 3 cup(s) Rice (we prefer Jasmine)
  • 1 large Onion (peeled and cut into quarters)
  • 1 1/2 tsp(s) Garlic (we prefer jarred roasted garlic)
  • 1/2 tsp(s) Cummin (add more to taste)
  • 1 tsp(s) Dried Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp(s) Dried Cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp(s) Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp(s) Black Pepper
  • 2 cup(s) Diced Fresh Tomatoes (or 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes)
  • 3 1/2 tbsp(s) Paulita's Green Chile Seasoning (add more to taste)



  • Oil a 4 quart, heavy gauge pot with olive oil then add ¼ cup of olive oil to the pot. Add rice and onion and blanche on medium heat until rice is golden brown stirring frequently.
  • Add all the other ingredients except for the Paulita's Green Chile Seasoning. Stir well and then add 3 ½ cups of hot water and bring to a boil. I pour the water through a splatter screen as it prevents a mess on my stove. Add Paulita's Green Chile Seasoning ½ tablespoon at a time stirring between additions. Taste for desired salt content and add more as needed.
  • Cover tightly and lower heat to a simmer for 15-20 minutes. Do not stir or open lid (my husband is awful about this). Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes as the trapped steam will finish off cooking the rice.
  • We serve straight from the pot though you can place the contents into a serving dish for more formal occasions.

I have been using your products and wanted to let you know delicious it is. I have made it for my daughter and son. We have used the sauce, marinade and seasoning and it tastes great. I want you to know that I think you have a real winner on your hands. I’m even going to use it our the turkey I’m going to smoke. Thank you!

From the first time I tried Paulita’s Green Chile Seasoning I was hooked! I immediately requested to try the Green Chile Sauce which by the way has the greatest bite of spiciness! The one box made enough for 2 dinners worth! I’m excited to now try the marinade, I have no doubt I will not be disappointed. Paulita’s will be a regular staple in my pantry!

I have tried your green chilie seasoning and I have found this to be one of my favorite seasonings! Its great to add as a seasoning while cooking also as extra flavoring to food.. I have shared some products with my family and everyone enjoys the flavor it adds! The green chilie sauce is also amazing and easy to make… This is good for enchiladas, or any added green chilie sauc..

I look forward to getting more products – ( As Ive already put in holiday orders!)
