Poblano Rice

Do you know what day it is? Do you know what day it is? It's Taco Tuesday! Forget the stupid camel and hump day, I WANT TACO TUESDAY! Specifically, today, I want a delicious side to go with my tacos. This rice is tasty and full of flavor because you cook up the poblanos with some onion and garlic then puree it with broth to make a delicious sauce in which you then cook the rice. Oh yes I did! The puree can easily be made ahead and then you can cook the rice when you are ready. Enjoy
