"This recipe is a great spin-off on your conventional (and let's face it, plain) side dish of rice at dinner. The brown rice provides a nutritious, fiber-packed alternative to white rice, and the cilantro and the lime gives this dish an extra dash of delicious Mexican flavor."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

NOM NOM! I didn't measure the garlic, I just added a good spoonful--probably closer to a tbsp. This recipe is fabulous, but it makes a LOT...way more than 4 servings. Unless you are planning on eating nothing but rice for dinner this could easily feed 8 as a side or as a burrito filler instead of the stated four people. To give it extra zing, zest the lime and add that as well. Be careful though, as a little goes a long way. It was perfect with chicken enchiladas. This is going in my keeper box....it's just too bad that only 1/2 of my family likes cilantro and lime!
Good tasting recipe. I usually add my stuff to rice before I cook it so I wasn't sure about this method. It was great. I made my rice a bit drier so it would absorb the lime. I used white rice since I was short on time. Goes well with anything, especially Mexican and Thai.
Wonderful as is. My husband does not like brown rice, and he loved this. My kids did too!
I used an additional lime to soak the cilantro, best rice ever!!
This my new favorite rice, great with carnita's
Added great flavor to a dull food, I also added diced carrot and asparagus, went great :)
So thankful I came across this recipe!!
My 1year old LOVES CHIPOTLE brown rice and black beans.. And he pretty much eats rice and beans everyday for lunch.
Now I make this and freeze for the week.
Can't go wrong .. ABSOLUTLEY delicious and easy to prepare ??
Husband thought it was better than the restaurant
