Cilantro Lime Rice

It's hard to imagine a Mexican fiesta without rice.  This tasty twist on a classic is perfect.  I used a rice blend, so the contrast of white rice with bright green cilantro is more subtle, but it was a healthier carb choice for me.  Use whatever kind of rice you have on hand, and serve up this tasty rice with your favorite south of the border dishes!  If you'd like, you can even mix your rice in with these beans for a one-hit wonder!  Ole!

4 cups water
Juice of 1 lime
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups rice
3/4 cup chopped cilantro

Bring water, lime juice, and salt to a boil.  Add rice, place the lid on the pot, lower heat to simmer, and allow to cook until the moisture is absorbed, about 20 minutes.  Fluff with a fork and stir in the cilantro.
