Green Cilantro Rice

Recipe by Laura Lee in Texas

This is wonderfully flavored Mexican rice. I love to serve it with chicken enchiladas. It is a must try if you love cilantro.

Great recipe! Served this with Chicken Enchiladas #23052 by Wendy W88. I prepared it on the stovetop as suggested by others, otherwise I didn't change a thing. Thanks for posting!
