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!

I can't handle spicy, HOWEVER, I made this yesterday, along w/157068 and I liked this one over that one! (I might combine the two dishes though!?) I used Poblano b/c it's milder and I really, really loved this!! Thanks

Delicious and not too hot! Knew we would like as has our favorite ingredients. Made as posted including in oven because I needed my skillet to make Chicken Avocado which goes perfectly with this. Next time I am going to try with brown rice.Thank you for posting.
