Cilantro Lime Rice {A Minute Rice Recipe}

Last night's dinner was quesadillas and cilantro lime rice.  Here in Texas we sure do eat a lot of Mexican food!  I love cilantro on everything. 
Here is the recipe I used to make my cilantro lime rice:


1 cup Minute® Rice long grain white rice
1/2 lime, juice of
2 cups water
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro (or you can buy those tubes of prepared cilantro already mixed in the vegetable isle)
3 tsp vegetable oil

(I add green onions, but you don't have to...I just love green onions & they add a sharpness)


Add rice, water, 1 tsp oil + salt. boil on high until for about 4-5 minutes. Then, in a medium bowl, combine chopped cilantro, lime juice, rice, 2 tsp oil, & toss until mixed.

This rice is so easy and QUICK to make.  I love taking it to potlucks too because you can make a whole lot of it and it has a ton of flavor.  You can serve with quesadillas like I did, burritos, or enchiladas.  It's a great side dish for any Mexican meal.
