      I suggest using canned tomatillos so you don't have cook them down or food process them. This rice goes really well with fish tacos.

      We loved this rice. I used one whole jalapeno. At the end, I added the squeeze of lime and a handful of fresh, chopped tomatoes. Delicious and has lots of flavor.
