This cilantro rice recipe is also great with grilled chickenfajitaspork or seafood. Make a double batch and freeze for later.

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup white rice
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons water

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a pot. Add the rice and cook, stirring, until it gets light brown.
  2. Add the chicken stock and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook until rice is just tender.
  3. To a blender, add almost all of the cilantro (save a little for garnish), lime juice, garlic and water. Blend. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add more water if it’s too thick.
  4. Pour cilantro mixture into the rice. Mix well. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed. Garnish with additional cilantro and lime wedges.
