I cut waaaay back on the cilantro and that proved to be a good call for Hubs and me. Just before I served this I gave it a taste and thought to myself, "Uh-oh. We aren't EVEN going to like this. TOO limey!" But I went ahead and served it anyway, hoping for the best - and hoping I had enough other food in case we couldn't eat this. But to my surprise, not only did *I* like it, but Hubs did too! It's obvious this rice is much better served *with* something, in this case carnitas. They were perfect together! The amount of lime juice and zest ended up being just right, but I know the full amount of cilantro would have dominated to a fault - glad I cut it back to a fraction of what the recipe called for.

I used Jasmine rice with the proportions of 2 cups of rice to 3 cups of water. I increase the lime to juice of 2 fresh limes. Fabulous!

A very light and delicious side dish for mexican foods. I loved the lime flavor. I used Uncle Ben's ready rice that only takes 90 seconds in the microwave, so there was no need for water and then just mixed everything in -plus an additional bit of salt.
