Green Rice (Honduras)

“This recipe was found in the “Cooking Light” magazine. If you enjoy tomatillos, you will enjoy this.”


6 large tomatillos (about 3/4 lb)
2 tablespoons water
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
4 teaspoons minced seeded jalapeno peppers
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/4 cups uncooked long grain rice


Discard husks and stems from the tomatillos. Cook the tomatillos in boiling water in a medium saucepan for 4 minutes or until soft; drain.

Combine the tomatillos and 2 teaspoons water in a blender and process until smooth. Pour the tomatillo mixture into a 4 cup glass measure, and add enough water to mixture to measure 2-1/2 cups. Combine the tomatillo mixture, cilantro, jalapeno, salt and garlic in a saucepan, and bring to a boil.

Add rice; cover mixture, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, and fluff with fork.

Honduran Mango Avocado Salsa (Honduras)

“My grandma came back from Honduras with some amazing snack recipes up her sleeve and I just needed this one in particular. It is great for parties and adds a very festive feel to your surroundings. It is best served alongside some tortilla chips, and I prefer yellow corn tortilla chips and if you have to use a name brand I prefer Tostitos.”


1 mango, peeled and diced
2 avocados, peeled and chopped
1 tomato, diced into very small pieces
1/8 red onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced into very small pieces

1 dash garlic powder (optional)
1 dash lime juice (optional)


Cut up the mango avocados, tomato, red onion and red pepper in to the amounts described.

For extra flavor, add a dash of garlic powder and/or a dash of lime juice.

Then when all the work is done, let it sit in the bowl for about 20 minutes or over night with a plastic wrap over it to keep its flavor.

After that, all you have to do is serve it with chips and enjoy!
