Cilantro Lime Rice

I am not a big lime fan. BUT this rice recipe was to die for! Everyone loved it! I found this recipe on Pinterest on Enjoy!


Cilantro Lime Rice

What you need:

2 tablespoons of butter

2 cups of rice (jasmine, white, or any other kind you like)

1 teaspoon of sugar

1 large or 2 small limes

4 cups of chicken broth

6 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, minced

salt, to taste



In a medium-sized skillet or saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add rice and sugar, and sauté for a couple of minutes, then add the juice of 1/2 the large lime or one of the small limes. Stir for a minute, then add chicken broth and salt, if desired. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until broth is absorbed and rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in cilantro and add the rest of the lime juice. SO GOOD!!! It goes nicely with the Crock Pot Southwest Chicken! Find it here:
