Mexican Green rice. This rice is amazing. It take a little bit of time to prepare but its a very simple dish to cook. all you need is a little bit of time and you will have perfect Mexican green rice. This is perfect for Quesadillas, fajitas, Taco’s, enchiladas and a whole host of other Mexican dishes! Combine this rice with some freshly made Pico de gallo and some guacamole and you are on to a winner!
Mexican Green Rice Is not your standard rice (and miles better than the horrible microwave variety!) It is full of flavour, although the flavour is delicate and not overpowering. It does have chillies in it but it’s not overly spicy this is because the chillies that I have used are Jalapenos.
You can if you wish, use whatever chillies you like to make it as hot as you like! If you want to use Carolina Reapers then go ahead! You will ruin the flavour of the rice though as you probably won’t be able to taste anything else! You have been warned!
For This Mexican green rice you will need the following ingredients;
- A cup of white rice
- Two handfuls of spinach leaves
- A garlic clove
- Two cups of Vegetable stock
- Half a bunch of coriander or Cilantro in you are in the US.
- A small white onion
- Three Jalapeno Chilli peppers
- Sea Salt to taste
Like I have already said Mexican green rice is a really easy dish to put together and tastes even better if you use freshly made Vegetable stock!
Freshly made Vegetable Stock
Making fresh vegetable stock is so much better than making stock from a stock cube! This is because stock cubes are full of additives and flavour enhances. It’s well worth making some fresh Vegetable stock and using this in place of a stock cube or stock pot!
