Expert Tips

Use 1 cup coarsely chopped cooked ham (about 5 ounces) instead of the bacon.

Cilantro, also called Chinese parsley, is the bright green leaves and stems of the coriander plant. Typically used in Asian, Caribbean and Latin American cooking, it lends a distinctive flavor to any dish. Cilantro is usually sold in bunches and can be found year-round in most supermarkets.
