El Pollo Loco uses fresh minced serrano peppers (about 1/2 tbsp would do for a recipe this size) that has been sauteed gently in a tsp of cooking oil, then everything else is added to the pan and simmered til done and rice is fluffy. It's just not right without the little kick the serranos lend. Same thing with their pinto beans. Yum yum!!
