Followed your instructions to the T. Turned out perfect! Slightly more mild in the cilantro taste but I actually like that better! I found another recipe for making the copy cat beans. I poured the beans on top of the rice and topped it with shredded monterey jack and sliced avacado. I will definately make it again! Thanks!
It's very good.I made it with a little less Cilantro since we don't like alot of Cilantro.We're having it with chicken tacos...Yummy.thanks for the recipe..................
Its not beans - obviously! 'cos then you would soaking them overnight. But soaking the rice for few minutes, draining and then cooking it helps to keep the grains separate and fluffy.This method is popularly followed by the Indians to make their pulaos. --DK
The problem with rice is that the quality differs from place to place, brand to brand and at times the shelf life. It is hence better to not follow the timings exactly as per any recipe given but use as a guideline. Next time try with less water since from what you tell me, I think ur rice needs less water. --DK
I havent personally tried it myself, but I see no reason to why it should not. You probably would need a tad bit more seasoning and herbs --DK
Nothing like from "the horses mouth". Will def. try ur way and see the difference. Thanks for taking out the time :) --DK
I have never tried with dried cilantro hence cant comment on it, although I think fresh might be better than the dried version - but then I might be biased cos I just love the chipotle version to death :) --DK
I would personally suggest using the lime and cilantro when you are eating it and preparing just the rice ahead. That way it still tastes fresh. One of my friends adds even lime and stores it and feels that the sitting time helps to improve the flavor, while I feel that it doesnt taste "fresh". I think it comes down to one's taste buds. But add the cilantro fresh every time.
I am sure you can :)
Oh yes I am sure you can! Yes, do let us know how it turned out! :) --DK
Awe comeon, Its such a logical question. I think you can - of course it wont be chipotle rice ;) but its sure healthier :)
There are long grained, medium and short grained. long grained ones are great for recipes where you want the texture distinct and separate and not mushy. the medium and short grained rice tend to get mushy faster and hence are ideal for pudding's etc.

I am a cilantro lover hence might sound biased ;) Simple recipes like this, will help to soothe out all the complicated foods out of your system. You can also try it with the suggested vegan refried beans. Its simple too and I find it makes harmony at the table. We all need a break from eating rich and junk food too....er at least sometimes! ;)
