Milk Street Recipe

Arroz Verde (Green Rice)

25 minutes

This flavorful, vibrant Mexican side dish pairs well with almost any type of main, from Indian curries to simple roasted chicken. The dish often is made by adding pureed cilantro and chilies to the liquid at the start of cooking, but this produces rice that's army green and dull in taste. To keep the color and flavor fresh, we cook our rice with just the hardier flavorings—garlic, scallion and half of the chilies—then stir in the puree after cooking. Seeding all the jalapeños keeps this dish mild; if you want some heat, leave the seeds in one or more of the chilies.
