In a saucepan fry the rice in the oil over high heat until it is a golden color.
Drain off most of the oil.
Put in a blender the water, parsley, cilantro, lettuce, chilies, scallions and garlic.
Blend until smooth.
Add this mixture to the rice and cook over high heat until the rice is almost dry.
Add the chicken broth and salt to taste.
