Spicy Cilantro Rice

Makes 2 cups
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: About 15 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a glass baking dish with foil and cover with nonstick cooking spray. Place the jalapeños, habeneros and garlic cloves on the foil. Bake for about 10 – 15 minutes or until darkened and garlic is fragrant.
  2. In a medium sauce pan, bring the water to a boil. Add salt and rice and reduce heat to low. Simmer until the rice is soft and tender, about 15 – 20 minutes. Drain the water and place the rice in a large bowl.
  3. In a food processor, add the oil, cilantro, jalapeños, habaneros, garlic, lime zest, lime juice and salt and pepper. Pulse on low until slightly pureed. Mix the cilantro mixture to the rice and stir to combine. Serve immediately.
