  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the corn kernels and cook until they are tender, which should take about 5 minutes.
  2. Mix in the poblano pepper, onion, peas, garlic, and carrot with the corn. Continue to cook and stir for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Pour in the water and milk, and bring the mixture to a boil. Let the butter melt into the boiling mixture.
  4. Add the rice and stir well. Season with chicken bouillon. Cover the saucepan, lower the heat to medium-low, and simmer until the liquid is fully absorbed and the rice is tender, approximately 20 minutes.


  • – For a vegetarian version, substitute chicken broth with vegetable broth.
    – Adjust the salt to taste.
    – Feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers or corn for extra flavor and color.
