1. Drain liquid from tomatoes into a glass measure. Add enough of the broth to make 4 cups (950 ml) liquid. Set tomatoes and broth mixture aside.
2. Melt butter in a 4- to 6-quart (3.8- to 6-liter) pan over medium-high heat. Add rice and cook, stirring, until it begins to turn opaque (about 3 minutes). Add onion, garlic, chiles,- and 1/4 cup (60 ml) water; continue to cook, stirring, for 5 more minutes. Add more water, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time, if pan appears dry.
3. Add tomatoes and broth mixture to pan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender to bite (about 25 minutes)
