    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.

      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.
