Recipe Ingredients for Mole Rice

2 slices Black Label Bacon
1 tbsp Sesame Seeds
1 tsp Oregano
0.5 tsp Cumin
1 large (2-1/4 per lb, approx 3-3/4" long, 3" dia) Peppers, Sweet, Red
0.5 large Onions
1.5 tsp Minced Garlic
2 cup, pieces or slices Mushrooms
2 cup Organic Free Range Chicken Broth
6 oz Tomato Paste
1 oz Baking Chocolate Semi Sweet
1 cup Rice, Brown, Medium-grain, Cooked
0.5 cup, chopped Onions, Spring Or Scallions

Recipe Directions for Mole Rice

  1. Toast/cook sesame seeds, oregano, and cumin in a skillet over medium heat for 30-35 seconds. Set aside.

  2. Cook bacon and set aside. To the same skillet with bacon drippings, sauté red pepper, onion, garlic and red pepper flakes with a pinch of salt and pepper until softened. Add mushrooms and cook until soft.

  3. Increase heat to high and add chicken broth, 1/4 cup of water, tomato paste, chocolate and toasted spice mixture. Bring to a boil; add rice and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook till tender and liquid is absorbed, 30-35 minutes. Stir rice after 15-20 minutes to make sure it?s not sticking and has enough liquid left to cook completely. Add more stock or water if needed.

  4. Once rice is tender, turn off heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in chopped bacon; check for seasoning, adding salt and pepper if needed.

  5. To serve, top with chopped green onions.
