DIRECTIONS

  • Place the peppers, scallions, parsley, cilantro, garlic, and salt (if using chicken stock, reduce amount of salt to 1 tsp) in a food processor and process until smooth. Add a little water if needed.
  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the rice and stir to coat all the grains. Cook, stirring for about 2 minutes more.
  • Add the ingredients from the blender to the rice and stir two more minutes, to incorporate well.
  • Add the chicken broth or water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  • Turn the heat off and stir in the lime juice, making sure it's evenly dispersed.
