.3 cloves garlic minced

.1/2 tbsp. salt

.3 cups rinsed long grain rice

.Zest of one lime

.3 tbsp. chopped green onion

.4 tbsp. chopped cilantro

.4 tbsp. chopped parsley

.5 cups chicken broth

In a large pot on low heat, add vegetable oil, chopped shallots, salt, Anaheim chili and sauté for a minute.

Add garlic and cook for few seconds, add rinsed rice and stir for 2 minutes.

Add chicken broth and bring to boil, lower heat cover and cook for 20-25 minutes or until the rice is fully cooked.

Let the rice stand for 10 minutes.

Before serving, mix the herbs and add to the rice, add lime juice, lime zest and fluff with a fork. Enjoy!
