This rice is great as a side dish or added to your favorite taco salad or burrito. Much like you will find in fresh-Mex restaurants.


1/2 onion, chopped
1 (4 ounce) can green chilies
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 lime, juiced
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
3 cups water
4 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter, softened
3 cups uncooked instant rice


Blend the onion, green chiles, garlic, and lime juice together in a food processor until smooth; add the cilantro and pulse until the cilantro is finely chopped into the mixture.
Bring the water to boil in a saucepan. Stir the cilantro mixture, chicken bouillon granules, salt, butter, and rice into the water and return to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer until the rice has absorbed the liquid entirely, about 20 minutes.
