  • Ready In

  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.

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 j...

This was awesome! Just like the kind you get at Mexican restaurants!! I agree with some others that you need to *pulse* the cilantro in the food processor (added last) or it chops too fine. I...

Pretty good, but not the rice I was hoping for...still searching for the clone of Chipotles!

Fresh and flavorful recipe! I was looking for a rice dish using lime and cilantro to give a kick to our usual side of plain rice and this recipe fit the bill. I made it just as stated, except ...

Good! I had a recipe similar to this years ago and lost it, and I've been looking for a replacement ever since. This recipe is close. The flavor is really good. I would suggest adding about 2 ts...

Very tasty! I made this to go with a chicken dish and it was a great compliment: light, but very flavorful. I did leave out the green chiles for my children.
