Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, poblano, and jalapeno pepper to the pot; cook, stirring often, for 3-4 minutes or until tender. Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, and oregano, and cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute.

Step 2

Add the rice, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; stir well to coat each grain with oil then cook for a full 4-5 minutes stirring often to prevent the rice from sticking to the pan. Add the drained tomatoes and chicken broth then stir to combine and cover with a lid. Reduce heat and cook on low for 20 minutes then remove from heat and let the rice sit, still covered, for an additional 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork then toss with the cilantro. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
