My family is a huge fan of my Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe. Having experienced the flavor at Chipolte, my hubby and I started playing around with ingredients until we came up with this fabulous 5 ingredient recipe!
Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe makes a simple meal taste elaborate! And this is one of those recipes that I always have the ingredients on hand! Cilantro Lime Rice is the perfect compliment for any Mexican or Caribbean cuisine. I recently shared my recipe for Mango and Chicken Shish Kabobs. Cilantro Lime Rice is a great side dish when serving these kabobs!
My only warning is that once you prepare Cilantro Lime Rice, you’ll find yourself doubling the recipe from then on, because you just can’t get enough!
Cilantro Lime Rice
1 tablespoon butter
2/3 cup long grain white rice
1 freshly squeezed lime
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons finely chopped cilantro
1 cup water
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add rice to saucepan for 1-2 minutes until coated with butter. Then add water to saucepan and bring to a rolling boil (no cheating here). Turn the heat down to low, cover, and simmer for 18-20 minutes, until water is absorbed and rice is just tender. Remove from heat, add freshly squeezed lime, salt, and cilantro. Fluff with a fork. Serves 4.
