Expert Tips

  • Serve with side toppings like pico de gallo, salsa, guacamole, avocados, sour cream, lettuce and chopped cilantro.
  • Often used in southwestern cooking, cilantro adds a cool touch to food that is often spicy. This herb is fairly strong flavored, so use it in small amounts, adding more as you determine the flavor is good.
