    @Edna DeFoney The recipe does call for 1/4 cup cilantro, though the authors do suggest fresh cilantro (we've adjusted the ingredient name to reflect this). But they really like cilantro! Feel free to adjust the amount to taste based on your own preferences.

  • Not recommended

    The 1/4 cup of cilantro has to be a mistake. Maybe more like 1/4 teaspoon?
