Cilantro Lime Rice in Bowl

Yummy Mexican Side Dish

We got invited to our friend’s birthday party and were asked to bring a Mexican side dish. Josh made Cilantro Lime Rice to take to the party. The rice was a hit and I told everyone the recipe was on our website, well, I lied. Sorry friends! I went to look for the recipe and realized I never posted it. Cilantro lime rice is one of our favorite side dishes so I can’t believe I have never shared the recipe. Well, today we are sharing the recipe so everyone can enjoy!

How To Make Cilantro Lime Rice

We cook the rice in water and vegetable broth to give the rice added flavor. If you don’t have vegetable broth, feel free to substitute chicken broth. Fresh lime juice and cilantro jazz up the white rice to create an outstanding rice dish. Cilantro lime rice is a great side dish to any Mexican meal. We often serve it with enchiladas, burritos, tostadas, fajitas, and tacos. It is simple to make and pairs nicely with all Mexican food.
