“This is a rice recipe that goes great with a fresh mex meal. We moved from Utah and missed our local fresh mex resturant (Cafe Rio). Try it with the Sweet Pork recipe. We like to buy the raw tortillas at Costco and make pork, rice, and bean burritos.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop onion and garlic small. In a food processor, chop cilantro (I remove stems). Set aside.
  2. In a 4 cup measurer squeeze lime so that all of the juice is extracted. Fill the container with water until it equals 4 cups. (you only want 4 cups liquid total). Place liquid in a sauce pan, add boulion and bring to a boil.
  3. When liquid comes to a boil, add onion, cilantro and rice. Cover and cook 20 minutes, or as long as instructed on the rice package.
  4. If you can't find a large lime you may want to do 1 1/2 limes. I tried 2 limes and it was too much.
