A stir-in of cilantro and lime juice transforms plain cooked rice into a lively side that's an ideal accompaniment for Mexican main dishes, such as Chicken Fajita Tostadas.

    Archer Farms used to make a Cilantro Lime boxed rice that I absolutely loved to serve on Taco Nights. Then, out of nowhere they stopped making it. I tried several other recipes I found on the Internet, but they weren't very good. This recipe came as a Godsend as it's even better than the boxed AF Rice because I'm using all fresh ingredients. I'm not a huge fan of the greenish color, but the taste more than makes up for it. Thank you!!

    Simple and delicious! (Make extra mixture so the flavor is more intense.)

    I make this for big make your own taco parties. I usually increase the cilantro-rice mixture by 50% so that the rice is extremely flavorful. I also add a dash more salt as well.

    Does it work as well with brown rice? Would love to make it but can only use brown rice.

    I made this and I love it. I love rice and we usually cook it in a rice cooker . Flavoring it with cilantro adds a lot of kick into it. Next time, we will eat it in burrito.

    mmmmm.... I am thinking roast the garlic with pepitos and a bit of lime juice or better yet zest, then add to the rice. Delicioso!
