How to Make Green Mexican Rice

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 9 steps you must follow to make Green Mexican Rice in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Wash the rice, soak in water for about 20 minutes, and drain into a sieve.
  • Step 2
  • Finely chop all the ★ vegetables.Take the seeds out of the jalapeno pepper, and chop it finely.
  • Step 3
  • Heat up the olive oil in a thick-bottomed pan. Sauté the vegetables from Step 2 until softened. Add the rice, and sauté until it turns a bit translucent.
  • Step 4
  • Add the chicken stock and water to the pan. Turn the heat up to high and bring to a boil while stirring with a wooden spatula.
  • Step 5
  • Cover the pan with a lid, turn the heat down to low and cook for 15 minutes. Turn the heat off and leave to steam for 10 minutes.
  • Step 6
  • Mix the rice up well. Arrange on serving plates alongside the main dish. (Serve with lemon wedges on the side if you like.)
  • Step 7
  • ■ Variation no. 1: Mexican-Style Sautéed Chicken Thighs (see. This goes so well with this green rice. I highly recommend it.
  • Step 8
  • ■ For your reference: If you have a lot of coriander left over, immerse the stem ends in a bowl filled with water and cut them with scissors under water. Immediately put the coriander in a cup of water.
  • Step 9
  • ■ (continued) Cover the coriander with a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator; and this way it will stay fresh for about a week. (Be sure the leaves don't get wet.)
