Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

In a small sauce pot, combine the red rice and ¾ cup lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer the rice to a medium bowl.
While the rice cooks, prepare the vegetables.


Prep the vegetables

  • Peel and coarsely chop the yellow onion.
  • Trim the ends from the zucchini; cut the zucchini lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into 1-inch pieces.
  • Shuck the corn. Lay the cob flat and cut the kernels from the cob.
  • If using the poblano, remove the stem, ribs, and seeds; coarsely chop the poblano. Wash your hands after handling.
  • Rinse the black beans.


Cook the vegetables

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and poblano, season lightly with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the corn and beans and cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Transfer to the bowl with the rice and toss to combine; season to taste with salt and pepper. Do not clean the pan.


Cook the eggs

In the same pan used for the vegetables, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil and warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Crack the eggs directly into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites have set and the yolks are slightly runny, 2 to 3 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate.


Transfer the rice-vegetable mixture to individual bowls and top each with an egg. Drizzle with the New Mexican chile blend and serve.
