To chop your cilantro pinch your cilantro together and lay on a chopping board. Next you can chop off the stems and the leaves and dispose. Chop up the remaining cilantro from end to end using a ‘rocking motion with your knife. Keep chopping until it has the desired consistency.

Once you’ve chopped your cilantro, try sprinkling it onto this Street-Corn Style Rice Bowl, this Southwest Pinto Beans and Rice Soup or this Southwest Rice Salad.
