Cilantro Lime Rice


More and more lately I've been wanting Mexican food.  Truth be told - because I'm {relatively} picky about my food I haven't really been a huge lover of it - but over the past few years, it's become craveable to me.  I'm still picky and like things relatively plain, but without a doubt, one of my favorite "Mexican" foods is Qdoba and Chipotle.  I'm putting Mexican in quotes because - well, let's face it - it's not real Mexican.  That being said though, you can't argue that it's not delicious!

I am a sucker for Cilantro Lime Rice - I love the stuff.  The best part about it - it's so easy to make at home, and much better for the wallet than getting Qdoba anytime you have a craving.  I always have rice and limes on hand, so $.99 for a bunch of Cilantro - can't beat that!

Cilantro Lime Rice
Ingredients:
2 cups water
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup long-grain white rice
1 teaspoon lime zest
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 cup chopped Cilantro

Directions:
Bring the water to a boil; stir the butter and rice into the water.  Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.

Stir the lime zest, lime juice and cilantro into the cooked rice just before serving
