EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

All rice is not the same! Because brown rice still has the germ and bran layer, it takes longer to cook, about forty-five to fifty minutes versus twenty minutes for regular long grain white rice, but it's worth the time. Cook a double batch, and keep rice in the freezer for nights you want brown rice in a snap. Use chili powder if cumin isn't available.

Omit pinto beans. Add 1 1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey with wild rice in step 1. Continue as directed.
