For being such a simple dish, there are many awful cilantro lime rice recipes to be found out there. However, Cooking Classy has gotten everything right with the rice in this recipe- it cooks up to be super tender without being too mushy, contains the perfect flavors, and keeps well in the refrigerator. Thanks to the chopped onion and garlic, lime juice, broth, diced green chilies, and more, this rice tastes just like it should- and even better.
Cilantro lime rice is a very versatile side dish and can be paired with just about any Mexican food from burrito bowls to fajitas to even tacos. The possibilities are simply endless!
One of the best things about this dish is how easy it is to make. The entire recipe is cooked in one pot and takes little more time than the duration the rice cooks for. It is an easy no-fuss side that pairs well with a more time intensive entree or other sides.
