long-grain white rice
fresh lime juice
I cut waaaay back on the cilantro and that proved to be a good call for Hubs and me. Just before I served this I gave it a taste and thought to myself, "Uh-oh. We aren't EVEN going to like this. TOO limey!" But I went ahead and served it anyway, hoping for the best - and hoping I had enough other food in case we couldn't eat this. But to my surprise, not only did *I* like it, but Hubs did too! It's obvious this rice is much better served *with* something, in this case carnitas. They were perfect together! The amount of lime juice and zest ended up being just right, but I know the full amount of cilantro would have dominated to a fault - glad I cut it back to a fraction of what the recipe called for.
Good recipie, not too flavorful. Everyone liked the rice inside the fajitas, but didn't have enough flavor to be a stand alone side dish.
I used Jasmine rice with the proportions of 2 cups of rice to 3 cups of water. I increase the lime to juice of 2 fresh limes. Fabulous!
A very light and delicious side dish for mexican foods. I loved the lime flavor. I used Uncle Ben's ready rice that only takes 90 seconds in the microwave, so there was no need for water and then just mixed everything in -plus an additional bit of salt.
We all loved this rice. I cooked it in a rice cooker and then mixed everything in a bowl. The rice came out fluffy and tasty.
Very good flavor, very, very easy indeed! Just like the rice at Chipotle's! We used it the first night as an accompaniment to some Lemon-Cilantro Chicken, and fluffed and heated it up the next night for fajitas!
I make this same rice, but instead of long grain rice, I use instant rice - as directed on package. When water and lime juice (1 tablespoon per cup of water) are heating, I add about 1/2 cup diced onion, a tablespoon of butter and a bit of salt. Once it boils, you add the instant rice, cover and remove from heat. It's simple and fast, some may not like instant rice, but to me, it tastes the same.
VERY good rice & extremely easy to make. I love the rice at Qdoba & I was pleasantly suprised to find that this was *almost" just like it. There was a bit too much lime taste in it that sort of overpowered everything else at times (next time I will cut it down to 1 tsp), but all in all a very basic & easy recipe to follow that recieved rave reviews at my deck party. Thank you for sharing!! :)
