This rice is great as a side dish or added to your favorite taco salad or burrito. Much like you will find in fresh-Mex restaurants.

Directions

  1. Blend the onion, green chiles, garlic, and lime juice together in a food processor until smooth; add the cilantro and pulse until the cilantro is finely chopped into the mixture.
  2. Bring the water to boil in a saucepan. Stir the cilantro mixture, chicken bouillon granules, salt, butter, and rice into the water and return to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer until the rice has absorbed the liquid entirely, about 20 minutes.

Note on the cilantro - Do not puree or you will end up with green rice. To avoid this chop by hand (do not add to blender). If you end up with "green rice" it still tastes great, but kids aren't as quick to eat it. :) This bit of the instuctions was missed after the editing process.

I enjoyed the recipe very much; my family ate plenty. The recipe is good as is. However, I did find the rice to be a bit onthe soggy side. I will try a few alterations to see if that helps. First, I will brown the rice a bit before added the other ingredients Also, I will not put the other ingreadients in the food processor, I will just chop small. Lastly, I will have the cilantro at the end to keep the color and flavor fresh.

This was a very tasty rice dish. I made as written, except using standard rice as opposed to instant. It was a nice accompaniment to the broiled tilapia that I had marinated in olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, chili peppers, etc. We did top the rice with some shredded cheddar which gave the rice a little more depth. I will keep this recipe in rotation. Thanks for sharing!
