I think this chain is mostly out west but I went to the one in Portland, ME with my sister and am now a huge fan. This is very similar to the rice that they use in the burritos and salads. Yummy!

  1. Chop veggies/herbs coarsely and then fry in 1 T butter or oil.
  2. Add rice and stir to coat and then add broth, salt and lime juice. Bring to rapid boil, turn down as low as possible, cover and simmer about 20 minutes - do not stir! Fluff with fork.

This was extremely delicious! I saved the cilantro to add after the rice was done cooking, but did everything else according to directions. Next time, I would use water instead of chicken broth, or maybe low sodium broth; I really like salt, but this was just a bit on the salty side. I enjoyed it, but someone on a low sodium diet might not. Thanks for a great recipe!

Loved all the flavors to this rice. I waited until the rice was done then added all the extras. Wonderful with Carne guisada and beans.

So delicious, the best Mexican green rice! Flavored with green chiles and cilantro. I added the cilantro just before serving, not to cook away the flavor.
