Cilantro Lime Rice

This rice tastes yummy with just about every Mexican dish. You can include as an ingredient in chicken, beef, bean or cheese burritos. It would also be a good side with many whitefish or chicken recipes.



  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6 thin slices of lime for garnish
  • salt to taste


Bring the rice and broth to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer until the rice is tender; about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat. Add lime juice, cilantro, and salt. Fluff with a fork, garnish with lime slices, and serve.

This sounds really yummy. Going to try it as a side when I make tequila-lime chicken or shrimp!
