This Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe Is What to Serve With Tacos (or Anything!)

Spanish rice rocks, but it'll turn green with envy over this cilantro and lime rice recipe. What a great way to spice up taco night! It's also great with grilled chickenfajitaspork or seafood

You'll need:

  • 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.
