My side dish contributions are mango, jicama, and cucumber salad, black been salad, or this cilantro lime rice. The best part about this recipe is that it’s simple to make with few ingredients, and always a hit.
My teenage daughter actually is the one who makes it often. If you plan to take it to a potluck I would recommend doubling the recipe.
This recipe is published in the Muy Bueno cookbook, and I can’t believe I haven’t shared it here on the blog.
Without further ado — here you have a simple cilantro lime rice that pairs exceptionally well with hot and spicy dishes. I especially like it with grilled fish or spicy mole. Speaking of mole – stay tuned for a slow cooker mole recipe coming later this month.

As much as I love the arroz I grew up eating, this recipe is a fresh and light alternative to the tomato base used in Mexican rice.
