Straight-ahead delicious, this is Mexican-style rice infused with smoky chipotles, garlic and cilantro. And studded with shrimp, which may seem pretty special-occasion for everyday eating. Chicken is more available and affordable, so feel free to replace the shrimp with an equal amount of boneless, skinless chicken thigh or breast cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Add them along with the broth rather than halfway through the rice cooking.

Shrimp overcooks quickly, so this is one rice-cooker dish you don’t want to let sit around; prepare it shortly before serving.
