This rice dish is the perfect side for a great Mexican meal and works particularly well with seafood or chicken. While it is light, the zest from the lime and heat from the chipotle neither overpower or swell into the background. One of the primary ingredients, chipotle bullion cubes, can easily be found in Mexican grocery stores.

  • 1 1/2 C white long grain rice
  • 2 1/2 C water
  • 1 chipotle bullion cube
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 C cilantro, minced
  • 1 chipotle pepper, minced
  • salt
  • pepper

Step One

In a small saucepan, combine white long grain rice, water, juice from the lime and chipotle bullion cube. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer for about 30 minutes until rice is tender and the liquid has all been absorbed.

Step Two

Stir in cilantro, chipotle pepper and zest from the lime. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately.
