Hey friends! I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys today! Ever since the very first time I stepped foot in Cafe Rio, I have been obsessed with their garlic lime rice! It just adds such a fun flavor to any Mexican dish (like our easy Salsa Chicken Tacos)! My favorite thing about this recipe is that it’s made with minute rice, so it is super quick and easy to throw together! For barely any extra work you can take your meal to another level! You ready for the recipe?
Cilantro Lime Rice
- 2 cups minute rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 cup onion chopped
- 2 tsp garlic salt
- the juice of 2 limes
- a handful of cilantro chopped
- Add rice, onions and chicken broth into a microwaveable bowl and cook for 8 minutes.
- Add garlic salt, lime juice and cilantro and mix with a fork until fluffed and combined. Enjoy!
We love this rice with tacos, quesadillas, burritos, taco salads, enchiladas, really the sky is the limit!
ALSO, if you have leftover rice, do yourself a favor and make this easy homemade rice pudding… it is freaking delicious!
Is there any way to substitute chicken broth for veg stock
I have made this rice several times (along with the homemade cafe rio pork recipe) and it is so good! And such a people pleaser. I couldn’t recommend this more!
I love making those together! You are so sweet!
