If you are looking for an alternative to Spanish rice, give this easy recipe a try. It has a great citrus flavor that pairs well with all Mexican recipes. I think you will love the cilantro and mild lime flavor in this rice. It's very similar to Chipotle's cilantro lime rice.

Cooking Recipe

Ingredients:
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 cup basmati rice
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
zest from one lime
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tsp. salt

Directions:
Add the oil to a sauce pan and heat on low. Add the garlic and rice to the oil and saute for 2 minutes on medium heat stirring frequently.

Add the chicken broth, salt, lime juice and bring to a boil. Cover and cook on low for 15 minutes or according to rice package directions.

When the rice is done, add lime zest and chopped cilantro and stir to mix in. Serve immediately.

If you are using regular long grain rice, follow the cooking directions on the box regarding the amount of liquid to use and the cooking time.

This rice would go great with our chile verde recipe. Check it out.

Enjoy,
