Cilantro Lime Rice

It’s been a whopping 20 days but I am finally getting around to posting the recipe for the rice to go along with the Almost Famous Corn Salsa ( You don’t want to miss out on this stuff either! This corn salsa and the cilantro lime rice are two of the components to go along with my copycat burrito I’ll be posting soon. Stay tuned for that one! In the meantime, make some of this to serve alongside of that salsa. You won’t be sorry!


Cilantro Lime Rice

1 cup Basmati rice*, prepared as you prefer

1-2 limes, juiced

salt, to taste

3 tablespoons chopped fresh Cilantro

1 tablespoon butter

Mix all ingredients together until cilantro and lime juice is equally distributed throughout rice. Serve warm with burrito fixings, as prefered.

*Note: You can use regular white rice for this recipe, but to me the Basmati rice seems to taste better in this recipe. I cook my rice in my rice cooker for the best texture.

    Hi Mandy! I am a friend of Amanda at My Hearts Desire. I love your blog! I thought that I saw a recipe for pesto made with pecans on your blog-did I? Let me know and if I didn’t I will just substitute with my recipe! Thanks, Marjie

    Thanks so much for the kind words, Marjie! You are too sweet! I’m sorry, but I don’t think I’ve ever made anything like that but it sounds delicious! If you locate it, would you mind sending me a copy too? I’d love to give it a try and post it in the future! :)
