  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook the corn kernels in the hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir the poblano pepper, onion, peas, garlic, and carrot into the corn; cook and stir another 5 minutes.
  2. Pour the water and milk into the mixture; bring to a boil. Allow the butter to melt into the boiling mixture. Add the rice and stir. Season with chicken bouillon; cover the saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer the mixture until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.

Used frozen peas and carrots and a jalapeno pepper in place of the poblano. Turned out nicely, although I didn't use the milk.

All of my picky eaters loved this.

Very good. I was short on liquid - rice adhered to side of pan; next time I'll add a little more.
