How did a visitor post a comment in 2009 on a recipe added in 2012? Why am I blending chopped water (on my screen after the cilantro it says 1 cup water chopped in blender)? I'm assuming I put a cup of water in with the cilantro and blend that until finely chopped but why would I drain that flavorful water? Where is the boullion in the ingredients and how much am I adding? So many questions!!

Why do you have to drain water after blending the cilantro? What do you do with the water?
