Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

Heat water to boiling, and add bouillon.  Stir to dissolve, and set aside.

Step 3

In small bowl, combine poblano chile, basil, mint and oregano, and Adobo to taste. Set aside.

Step 4

Heat olive oil in ovenproof saucepan over medium heat, and sauté shallots until translucent, about 5-6 minutes.

Step 5

Add rice, and sauté until coated with oil and heated through, about one minute. Rice may jump or pop.

Step 6

Add bouillon water and herb mixture to saucepan, and bring to simmer, stirring once or twice to prevent rice from clumping or sticking to bottom of pan.

Step 7

Cover pan, and place in oven. Cook until rice is tender, about 12-14 minutes.

Step 8

Remove from oven and let stand, covered, for five minutes to steam. Uncover, and separate rice grains with fork, releasing steam.

Step 9

Season with more Adobo to taste. Serve at once.
