    HSingARMYmom's Note:

    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!

      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.
