Don't let the name fool you. Sweet Tea Rice with Jalapeno, Peaches, and Pecans is a quick and easy side or main dish that is packed full of sweet, spicy, and nutty crunch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring tea to a boil in a 3-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat; stir in rice and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes or until tea is absorbed and rice is tender.

Step 2

Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add pecans, and cook, stirring often, 3 to 4 minutes or until toasted and fragrant. Add jalapeño, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in hot cooked rice, diced fresh peach, chives, 1/4 tsp. salt, and pepper.
