There is a local restaurant that serves green rice, but I don’t think it’s this type. This particular recipe may benefit from the addition of cilantro – it’s your preference. I’d probably top it with cilantro at least. You may also want to replace the Jack cheese with asadero or queso fresco, which are equally mild Mexican cheeses. Serve this up along side a taco or enchilada (or both!) and it would be a delicious meal!
Green Rice (Mexican)
Heat 1/4 c oil, add 1 c rice & fry til gold. Add 1 chopped onion, 1 clove garlic, 3 green peppers finely chopped or poblano chili. Cook stirring often until tender but not brown. Add 2 1/2 c hot chicken stock or bullion. Cook until done. Sprinkle with 1/2 c grated Jack cheese.
