cilantro lime rice.


this is a copycat of cafe rio's rice. doesn't taste the same, but still good! i served mine on a cafe rio style salad, but it would be a great side for any mexican dish.

3 cups rice
3 cups chicken broth {you can use water + boullion if you want}
4 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 can green chiles
3/4 ts salt
1 Tb butter
1/2 onion, chopped
juice from 1/2 lime

bring broth to a boil and add all the ingredients. cook approximately 20 minutes, or until rice is tender.

i ended up adding some water so it cook could longer. also, this makes a lot! so consider halving it!
