Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe

















Rice is so versatile.  You can make it creamy, sweet, savory, spicy, etc.  It's the perfect side dish!  I found this recipe on The Girl Who Ate Everything. We've made this several times since I first found it-we love it!

Ingredients:
1 and 1/4 cup Honeyville Long Grain White Rice
2 Tbsp Butter
2 and 1/4 cups Chicken Broth (I made my own using Water and Shirley J's Chicken Bouillon which is available at the retail stores)
Juice and Zest of 2 small limes (about 1/4 cup juice)
2 Tbsp chopped Cilantro
3/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Cumin
Pepper to taste

Directions:
Melt butter in a saucepan. Saute rice in butter for a minute or so. 


Add chicken broth, lime zest and juice, cilantro and spices.  Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low. 


Continue cooking for 20 minutes or until rice is done.  Fluff with a fork.


You can serve this with some grilled chicken or I like to use it with Tenille's Mexican Haystacks Recipe.  Super delicious!

Happy Eating!
