Sometimes the most simple side dishes can be your favorite go to dish. And believe me, simple dishes are what I need right now. I am so busy with the garden and taking care of all these veggies, I don't have time to fuss over recipes.
Set your favorite main dish recipe (Mexican Beef) to go in your slow cooker, and thirty minutes before dinner start this Cilantro Lime Rice. Simple and delicious. The cilantro and lime gives this such a fresh flavor, you will think it came from your favorite Mexican restaurant.
Cilantro Lime Rice
2 cups water
1 cup long grain white rice
1 tsp salt
4 tsp vegetable oil, divided
2 Tbsp lime juice (freshly squeezed if you have it)
3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
Cilantro for garnish, optional
Over high heat, bring water, rice, salt and 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil to boil. Let boil until most of the water is evaporated. When water just skims over the rice, cover and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes. At the end of 15 minutes, remove from heat and let set covered for an additional 5 minutes.
Add remaining vegetable oil, lime juice, and cilantro. Stir to combine. Garnish with additional cilantro if desired.
