Unhappy Rice in chilli

I put brown rice in the chilli I made last nite just to use up the rice. I think most of the rice didn't cook up. I had it boiling for awhile and then on a med. simmer for awhile. Can I do anything to it so the rice cooks up or should I toss it? Should I attempt this again or cook the rice first or what. Any suggestions?

brown rice takes considerably Longer to cook than white, it would probably have been to check it was done before adding it (but you can do that Next time) :)

for now though, you may try keeping this mixture on the heat for a while longer, if there`s Salt in the water that can slow the cooking time even further, I say keep going but not having it Too hot else the rest will stick to the bottom and burn :(

if you can actualy eat it, half or par cooked rice isn`t bad for you in anyway, you may just get a little thirsty later on.

Chili 'n rice...

I always cook the rice first, then add it to the chili. Chili, rice, jalepenos, cheese, onions, and topped with Fritos. Great for a cold day like "today".

Normally, I cook rice and noodles before adding them to anything.

Dolmades and cabbage rolls are the exception for rice. I just like fresh noodles in my dishes so I usually add them at serving time.

Uncle Bob, just mold the rice and put it in the center, like gumbo.

Where is it that serves chili over spaghetti? Is that Indianapolis?

I took your advice and put it back on the stove and it worked!!! I didn't think it would,I thought maybe by trying to cook it the way I did at first,I messed something up. Shows ya how little I know
Next time I'll make sure I'm sober before I experiment!

Goldstar Chilli a chain outfit based in Cincy serves it that way. Also have Skyline Chilli another chain outfit down there. Never had Goldstar but I did try Skyline and I jus got the regular small bowl of chilli can't remember what it cost but it was VERY expensive for such a small serving. All it was, was liquid and a very fine ground up beef and it had a distinct flavor of cinninim < spell ?.
I hated it just hated it
