Unique and tasty. I was skeptical about Romaine lettuce being included but it worked out well. Read More

This was the first time I've heard of a rice recipe with lettuce in it. It was delicious, though, and it is now one of my favorites! Read More

Deceptively simple but AMAZING. I subbed out the rest of a jar of salsa verde for the tomatillos and it turned out wonderful. The only issue is cooking time; it came out rather watery and I needed to cook it longer which made the rice pop. Not a perfect texture but still very good. Read More

I used jasmine rice and this recipe turned out perfectly. It was not gummy as others have noted. Delicious side dish! Next time, I will chop the cilantro and addit to the rice without pureeing it so that you can see some nice green bits of color. Read More

This was wonderful. I made the liquid mixture and browned the rice early in the day & served it with shrimp enchiladas suizas. Read More

Love the flavor combo. The only thing I will do differently next time is that I will rinse my rice. It got a bit gummy from the starch. Read More

I rinsed my rice thoroughly but it still was a bit gummy. I still loved it and will make it again. Read More
