Don’t get me wrong the recipe is really good. If you like cilantro you will love this rice. This recipe has a nice and spicy but you can control that with the amount of jalapenos you use. You ca also cut down on the garlic, but I wouldn’t. The garlic really melds this recipe together. I originally posted this recipe in 2009 so I have no idea who I owe credit to for you recipe. If it’s you please let me know.
