Cilantro Lime Rice like they make at those burrito restaurants!
Servings: 4
Author: Rex
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro diced
  • 1 tbs lime zest roughly 1 lime
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Cook the 2 cups of rice. I prefer to use a rice cooker. Takes all of the work out of making rice.
  2. Wash and then finely chop the Cilantro. The finer the better.
  3. Next zest the limes and then juice the limes. Make sure to do it in that order. It is super hard (almost impossible) to zest a lime after it has been juiced.
  4. Pour the rice into a large bowl. Fluff it with a fork and then add the juice, zest, cilantro and salt.
  5. Mix really well and then set aside to mingle for a minute or two.
  6. Serve.
