In a 3-quart pot over medium heat, heat OLIVE OIL until shimmering (about 2 minutes)
Add ONION, SERRANO PEPPER, and GARLIC and sauté until slightly tender (about 2 minutes)

Add VEGETABLE BROTH, TOMATOES, CORN, TACO SEASONING, GARLIC POWDER, SALT, CHILI POWDER, CUMIN, BLACK PEPPER, and CAYENNE PEPPER
Increase heat to med-high and bring all ingredients to a boil
Allow to boil for about 1 minute, stirring ingredients
Cover and reduce heat to low
Continue to heat for 30-40 minutes until rice is tender and liquid has absorbed
If there's too much liquid, continue to heat with the lid off and stir occasionally until desired consistency is reached.
Remove from heat, serve over tortilla chips and garnish
Note: You can add beans to this recipe. Just add them with the veggies before steaming the rice and ingredients.
