    Melanie2590's Note:

    Nice Mexican twist on boring old rice. If you can't find parboiled rice at your grocery store, long-grain rice may be substituted, but just won't be quite as yummy.

    1. 1
      Place the peppers, scallions, parsley, cilantro, garlic, and salt (if using chicken stock, reduce amount of salt to 1 tsp) in a food processor and process until smooth. Add a little water if needed.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the rice and stir to coat all the grains. Cook, stirring for about 2 minutes more.
    3. 3
      Add the ingredients from the blender to the rice and stir two more minutes, to incorporate well.
    4. 4
      Add the chicken broth or water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Turn the heat off and stir in the lime juice, making sure it's evenly dispersed.

      I LOVE this recipe! I had never heard of Mexican Green Rice, cooked with Poblano peppers, or cooked with Par-boiled rice. Melanie, you are "right on" about the par-boiled rice. My rice always seems to come out sticky but par-boiled rice made me look like a pro. I did some research on it and the way it is prepared for market makes it almost as nutritious as brown rice, but cooks like white rice. I have made this several times now, thanks for sharing.
