    Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
    Garlic (optional)
    Jalapeno Peppers, 1 pepper (optional)
    Mushrooms, fresh, .5 cup, pieces or slices

    Pepper, red or cayenne, .25 tsp (optional)
    Paprika, 2 tbsp
    sargento 4 cheese mexican blend, 1.25 cup


Start by cooking the rice (20 min)

While rice is cooking:

In an oven at 425* place chillies (cut tops off and remove seeds) in the oven and roast until the skin peels off easily.

Chop: Garlic, jalapeno, celery (with leaves), and mushroom

In a pan over medium heat add olive oil and cook Garlic, jalapeno, celery (with leaves), and mushroom and spices until soft (about 5-10 minutes)
Reduce to a simmer, and add tomatoes. I also add a tablespoon of BBQ sauce or tomato paste.
Stir and allow to simmer on low heat until rice is done and chilies are roasted.

Add cooked rice to the pan and mix in with the tomato sauce. Mix well until all the rice is covered with sauce.

Place rice mixture into a casserole dish.

Once chilies are roasted, remove from oven and carefully peal off skin and stuff with .25 cup of cheese each (or whatever amount you like really).

Place stuffed chilies on top of rice. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake in oven at 325* for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
