Heat oil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add rice and stir until slightly browned.
Add green chile, salt, and water.
Bring the rice to a boil over high heat and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, and simmer until the rice is tender. This will take from 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove from heat and sprinkle with salt if needed. Fluff rice with a fork. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
Arrange equal parts of the rice and the sliced and grilled vegetables in bowls. Top with corn, pinto beans, guacamole, and pico de gallo. Season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately and enjoy!
