This refreshing, simply prepared rice is oh-so good with most any Southwestern dish. Any leftovers make the basis for a cold rice salad just by adding your favorite vegetables and meats, such as Fajita Chicken.
Yield: 2 cups rice
1 ½ cups water*
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 Tablespoon chicken boullion base, such as Better Than Boullion*
1 Tablespoon butter
1 cup long grain rice
¼ cup Tomatillo based Salsa Verde
1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
- Bring the water, lime juice, chicken base and butter to a boil. Then add the rice and stir and cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until rice is tender and fluffy. When done, stir in the salsa and the cilantro and cover to fluff for a few minutes before serving or storing.
*If desired, you may use chicken stock instead of the water and bouillion.
