Transform boring, basic rice into something extraordinary with the addition of a few fresh ingredients. In this recipe, lime and cilantro are paired to create a classic flavor combination that brings added depth to your dishes. This recipe is a great compliment to the Mexican Shredded Chicken recipe that I shared earlier.
