This is the best rice dish I have ever put in my mouth. It is different from anything I have ever eaten. The flavors are wonderful. I will now be serving this for guests (as well as family) from now on because it is so impressive. Thank you.

This really is a wonderfully imaginative way of fixing white rice. The flavor was incredible and went equally well with both chicken and steak, though I can definitely see how it would be satisfying alone with a glass of wine! Thanks, PetitFour. I will make this one again and again!

This rice is absolutely delicious! A few months ago we had some extra cilantro and spinach in the house, so I came onto RZ to find something to use them for. I am so happy I came across and decided to try this recipe because it is now one of our family favorites. We've made it several times and it always comes out perfectly. I'd never made a rice dish with milk in it before, but don't let that turn you away! This one is definitely a keeper!

I am a rice lover and this was exceptional, and beautiful too. I served this with grilled chicken breast and glazed carrots, I also served it on ice blue plates, it was a beautiful presentation. The cilantro flavour was so subtle, even non cilantro loving people would enjoy this.

I love cilantro and wanted to serve this to my vegan guests, so I substituted veggie broth from a dry mix (surprisingly good, btw) for the chicken stock and milk, and margarine for the butter. Delicious! I thought it was a very good Mexican rice side dish. Smelled wonderful while cooking, too! Will definitely make again.

this is a beautiful, incredibly flavorful rice dish. the green color looks wonderful and i didn't tell my sons that it was from spinach and cilantro. we all loved it and i will double it next time. we all wanted seconds! i served it with grilled sausages and marinated tomatoes - a nice, colorful plate.

This is stupendous! So beautiful and aromatic. I've been making this for years, since I first got the recipe from you on another cooking site. You have a talent for sharing the BEST recipes.

I made this the first time for my brother's fiancee's wedding showeer and everyone thought it was so yummy. I have made it several times since then. My husband hates cilantro and loves it. My kids hate things that are green and they love it. I serve it with stuffed pork tenderloin with cilantro-lime pesto. Big flavors, smells wonderful.

Yuuuuumm... this dish has a really authentic flavor. I made this with brown rice rather than white, so I increased the cooking times a little. I also subbed turkey stock and baby spinach leaves. Excellent, though. I'll be making this again! I actually had this with fish, but I think I will have to break out the recipe again next time I make enchiladas or tacos. Super easy, too! Thank you!

While I served this rice with grilled chicken, it's easy to imagine how good it would be with chicken enchiladas. I also plan to try it without cilantro as a base for florentine dishes. Since we're concerned about fat, I browned the rice in only 1 tbs. of butter which seemed to work fine.
