Anyone else notice that the cost of limes has tripled? They used to be like $0.33 each and now they are $0.99. I guess if you buy a lime a few times a month it’s not bad but I over heard Nick watching the Colbert Report and Stephen mentioned some Mexican restaurants are thinking of using lemons in place of lime! I think Stephen was being sarcastic when he said the following but I really would say this: “What!? Lemons in my guac!?” Really though, lemons just can’t replace limes. So don’t go swapping out limes for lemons in this Cilantro LIME Rice.
Add this rice as an easy side dish to your Cinco de Mayo meal on Monday! Or check out my Spanish Rice which is also a great Mexican side dish. But seriously, this Cilantro Lime Rice takes like 2 more minutes to make than regular white rice.
- 1 cup long-grain white rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- Juice of 1 lime
- ½ cup cilantro, chopped
- Place rice and chicken broth in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook 20 minutes. (If you have a rice cooker, just combine rice and broth and cook until done.)
- When rice is done cooking, fluff, and mix in juice and cilantro. Serve immediately (or else cilantro will become wilted and lose its vibrant color).
