    Cookgirl's Note:

    Mexican Green Rice. For this recipe, I tested Morelos' rice from Mexico. Use regular long grain white rice if Morelos' is not available. From Better Homes and Gardens. Sometimes Spanish rice just doesn't cut it.

      I liked the speedy process! I used frozen cilantro and parsley and I had to leave out the chili peppers,but I added to my dish Mucho Mas Habanero green chili sauce.I felt that something was missing but being quite new to arroz verde couldn't really tell what was it. I kind of smelt like Iranian herbs rice,due to the use of fresh herbs.

      This recipe was delicious! A nice change from regular rice. I used my food processor to prepare the ingredients instead of a blender. I also sauteed a green pepper on the side and added it in at the last minute before serving. This will be a regular on our menu.
