This stuffing is holiday-appropriate: It has corn, chiles, and, of course, wild rice -- all traditional American-Indian ingredients.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring 5 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add rice and 1 tablespoon salt. Cover; reduce heat. Cook rice until al dente, 35 to 40 minutes (not all water will be absorbed). Drain well.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add onions and garlic; cook, stirring, until soft, about 2 minutes. Add chiles; cook 30 seconds.

  • Stir onion mixture, corn, pepper, and lime juice into rice; season with salt. Serve, or immediately pack loosely in turkey cavity, and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of stuffing registers 165 degrees.
